Trial date set in Hosier double-murder case
Thursday, June 23, 2011
The trial for a man accused of a 2009 double murder in Jefferson City has been scheduled for June 2012.
The trial date for David Hosier, 54, was set at a status hearing Wednesday before Cole County Presiding Judge Pat Joyce.
Hosier has pleaded not guilty to 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 also has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the death of Rodney Gilpin.
The Gilpins died from multiple gunshot wounds. Hosier was arrested in Oklahoma about seven hours after the Gilpins were killed in the hallway just outside her apartment at 1100 W. High St.
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.
