Court upholds death penalty in Jefferson City murder conviction

The Missouri Supreme Court has upheld the death penalty sentence for a man convicted of a 2009 Jefferson City murder.

David Hosier was sentenced to death in 2013 for killing Angela Gilpin.

Hosier appealed his sentence in October, saying there was a violation of the 4th amendment after he claimed police tracked his cell phone without a probable cause.

Hosier is also suspected of killing Gilpin’s husband, Rodney, in their Jefferson City apartment, but only went to trial for Angela’s death.

Prosecutors said Hosier and Angela Gilpin had an affair, but she was trying to reconcile with her husband. They believe that is what led Hosier to murder Angela and allegedly kill Rodney.
