JEFFERSON CITY - Day two of David Hosier's murder trial began Tuesday. Hosier is accused of killing his ex-girlfriend, Angela Gilpin and her husband Rodney. Authorities said the two were shot to death in Angela's apartment on September 8, 2009.

Prosecuting attorney Mark Richardson called Jefferson City Police Detective Barret Wolters to the stand to identify evidence found in Hosier's apartment shortly after the Gilpin's murders occurred. Officers found ammunition boxes, speed loader packages, and several knives throughout the apartment.

Jefferson City Police Detective Jason Miles also identified evidence found in Hosier's car. Oklahoma State Highway Patrol sealed the car for evidence when it arrested Hosier. Miles and officers found fifteen loaded guns, a duffle bag containing ammuntion, and a written note in Hosier's car.

Detective Miles also said he spoke with Jodine Scott the morning of the murders. Scott lived at the other end of the High Street Apartment buildings where the Gilpin's were found dead. Scott told Miles she received a call from Hosier the night before. Hosier left a message that said he was going to leave something on Scott's car for her "to take care of" if something were to happen. Miles said Scott told him she had previous conversations with Hosier and he told her he was going to "eliminate the problem."

The jury will continue to hear evidence Tuesday afternoon.
