Hosier Found Guilty on Multiple Charges
JEFFERSON CITY - Four years after he was arrested, the jury has found David Hosier guilty for multiple crimes including the murder of Angela Gilpin.
Jurors found Hosier guilty on counts of murder, burglary, armed criminal action and unlawful possession of a firearm Wednesday at the Cole County Courthouse.
Hosier was suspected in the death of 61-year-old Rodney Gilpin and his wife, Angela. They died in September 2009 after authorities said Hosier shot them several times.
Court documents said the Gilpins were separated, but trying to make amends. During their separation, Hosier and Angela were in a relationship, but Angela had been trying to end the relationship for two months.
