    David Hosier - Missouri Death Row


    Angela Gilpin


    Rodney Gilpin




    Death penalty sought in double murder case

    The Cole County prosecutor's office has filed court documents showing it intends to seek the death penalty in the case of a Jefferson City man charged with a double murder Sept. 28.

    During a case status hearing Wednesday, David Hosier, 54, was informed of the action by Presiding Judge Pat Joyce.

    No date was set for Hosier's next court appearance. He is currently being held in the Morgan County Jail in Versailles for Cole County.

    Hosier is charged with one count of firstdegree murder, armed criminal action, firstdegree burglary and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon in connection with the death of Angela Gilpin.

    He's charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the death of Rodney Gilpin.

    The Gilpins died from multiple gunshot wounds.

    He has pleaded not guilty to these charges.

    About seven hours after the Gilpins were killed in the hallway just outside her apartment at 1100 W. High St., Hosier was arrested by Oklahoma officials on a Jefferson City police bulletin.

    The Gilpins were separated at the time of the shooting, but were working on reconciliation. Angela had been in a relationship with Hosier during the separation, but had ended it, officials said.

    Jury recommends death in Hosier trial

    The jury in the David Hosier murder trial recommended he be sentenced to death.

    During closing arguments, prosecutors told jurors when Hosier took a life, he forfeited his own.

    He was convicted earlier this week for the murder of Angela Gilpin, among other charges.

    To recommend the death penalty, the jury said the prosecution proved two aggravating factors in the case. The first was a prior conviction for battery. The second was the murder of Angela Gilpin was committed while committing the murder of Rodney Gilpin.

    A formal sentencing date has not been set.

    The defense told jurors during closing arguments that no matter what, Hosier is never getting out of prison, and will no longer be a threat to women he feels betrayed him or abandoned him.

    His attorneys also said Hosier makes threats, but does not act on them.

    They also pointed out he has been in jail since 2009 and has not been violent toward anyone.

    The jury was told even if they prove one or more of the aggravating factors against Hosier, they are not obligated to recommend the death penalty.

    During other testimony Friday morning, a woman named Lisa Browning took the stand Friday morning to say David Hosier lived on the property owned by her and her husband in 2007.

    Browning told the court Hosierís behavior was very erratic, and at times it seemed like he wasnít sleeping, while at others he seemed fine.

    She testified her husband Ron was about to travel to Montana for work, but she did not want Hosier on their property while he was gone. When the time came to tell Hosier he needed to leave, Lisa Browning told the court she waited inside the house with a shotgun while her husband told Hosier the news.

    She said Hosier at one point pulled a gun on her husband before finally driving away.

    David Hosierís older sister also took the stand. Defense attorneys showed her pictures from Hosierís childhood along with pictures from right after their father was killed. She talked about how their fatherís death impacted Hosier.

    Motion for new Hosier trial denied

    Cole County Presiding Circuit Judge Patricia Joyce on Tuesday denied a motion for a new trial for David Hosier, convicted in the September 2009 killing of Angie Gilpin.

    Joyce on Tuesday ordered the death penalty be handed down in the case.

    A nine-man, three-woman jury from St. Charles County deliberated for just more than an hour on Oct. 23 before convicting Hosier, 58, of first-degree murder for killing Gilpin, 45, on Sept. 28, 2009.

    The same jury spent about two hours and 45 minutes on Oct. 25 before recommending Hosier be executed for that murder.

    Hosier's public defenders, Donald Catlett and Janice Zembles, had asked Joyce to overturn the convictions and hold a new trial. They had filed a 46-page motion raising 46 issues with procedural decisions Joyce made during the trial or the various pre-trial hearings.

    Motive in Hosier Case

    JEFFERSON CITY -- Police said the manhunt is over in a double murder in the Capital City.

    Authorities in Oklahoma arrested David Hosier, 54, of Jefferson City.

    The arrest came about eight hours after the murder. The Tahlequah Daily Press reported he attempted to flee when the sheriff's office, Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Tahlequah Police and Oklahoma Scenic Rivers Commission rangers tried to stop his vehicle.

    Hosier is in the Cherokee County Detention Center in Tahlequah, Okla. Jefferson City police are on their way to Oklahoma to interview Hosier.

    Police said Hosier's quick capture was thanks to an all-points-bulletin, APB, they sent out to law enforcement agencies across the country to look for the 2000 Black Pontiac Grand-Am he was driving.

    He was arrested for the murders of Rodney Gilpin, 61, and Angela Gilpin, 45.

    The couple was found shot to death around 3:30 this morning in the entry way of their apartment building in the 1100 block of West High Street.

    "We received a 911 call from a resident of the building who stated that she was concerned that she saw her neighbors lying in the doorway or the hallway of an apartment in this building," Jefferson City Police Department Capt. Mike Smith said.

    Angie Gilpin's mother said her daughter was probably leaving for her job at a Wardsville Convenience store when she was gunned down.

    Police said it was Hosier, her neighbor, waiting for her as she left her apartment for work.

    Hosier would have known when Angie normally left; the two reportedly had a relationship while Angie was estranged from her husband.

    Angie's mother said her daughter and her husband were getting back together, which is why he was at her apartment this morning.

    Family and police said that may have been motive for the murder.

    "What little we do know is that the relationship was tumultuous and that the female victim did not want a relationship with Hosier,” Smith said.

    Police said Hosier lived on West Main Street in an apartment building on the same property as the building where the murders happened.

    The landlord said he was evicting Hosier because of he was bothering Angie.

    Angie's mother also said that Hosier had been harassing her daughter over the past couple of months.

    Police said they found ammunition inside of Hosier's apartment.

    The landlord was terribly upset this happened on his property. And that he didn't know Hosier had out-of -state warrants for his arrest.

    The murders put the entire neighborhood, including nearby Heisinger Bluffs retirement home, on high alert.

    “It’s the first thing we do,” Smith said. “As you can see from the amount of crime tape out here, we’ve secured quite an area just to make sure that we’ve got any possible evidence covered. The officers are out doing a neighborhood canvas.”

    Police quickly went door to door with flashlights looking for the killer and asking neighbors if they saw anything.

    "The police, when I got home this morning, asked me about all of this stuff because I guess, what they said, the murder was about 3:30,” neighbor Brian Truedonnelly. “So it’s sort of scary that I was out there about that time. But I didn't really see anything."

    Hosier is originally from Jefferson City and has family there.

    Angie Gilpin leaves behind adult children.
