Hosier seeks change of venue for murder trial

Prosecutor against moving trial, but willing to import jury

Lawyers for a man accused of killing two Jefferson City residents in September 2009 are asking that his murder case be moved on a change of venue.

During a hearing Tuesday at the Cole County Courthouse, Public Defender Donald Catlett presented documents to Presiding Judge Pat Joyce on behalf of his client David Hosier, 54, who was not at the hearing. He is being held in the Morgan County Jail for Cole County.

Hosier is charged with one count of first-degree murder, armed criminal action, first-degree burglary and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon in connection with the death of Angela Gilpin. He’s also charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the death of Rodney Gilpin.
