Trial set in deaths of Jefferson City couple

David Hosier is charged

A man accused in 2009 of killing a Jefferson City couple is scheduled to go on trial this month.

57-year-old David Hosier is charged in the deaths of 61-year-old Rodney Gilpin and his wife, 45-year-old Angela Gilpin. They died in September 2009 after being shot several times in Angela Gilpin's Jefferson City apartment, a block from Hosier's home.

Investigators say Angela Gilpin had a romantic relationship with Hosier while separated from her husband, but the Gilpins were trying to reconcile. Angela Gilpin had sought an order of protection against Hosier.

Hosier's trial for first-degree murder and other charges will begin Jan. 14. The jury will be chosen in Clay County and taken to Cole County for the trial.
