JEFFERSON CITY — A Jefferson City man accused in a double killing had a troubled past.
David Russell Hosier has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of 45-year-old Angela Gilpin and 61-year-old Rodney Gilpin. The Gilpins had been separated but were reconciling.
The Jefferson City News-Tribune reported that when Angela Gilpin sought an order of protection against Hosier last month, she alleged he was a former boyfriend who was stalking her.
Hosier also had been involved in three standoffs. The first occurred in May 1986 after Hosier had a confrontation with his wife and his sister. The second occurred the next month after Hosier refused to be taken for a court-ordered psychiatric evaluation.
He later served time after he held a woman hostage and beat her in November 1992 in Logansport, Ind.
