Jury recommends death penalty

Jurors this afternoon recommended that David Hosier be executed for killing Angela Gilpin, 45, on Sept. 28, 2009.

The nine-man, three-woman jury from St. Charles County — which had deliberated for just more than an hour Wednesday afternoon before convicting Hosier, 58, of the first-degree murder charge — deliberated the death penalty question for about two hours, 45 minutes.

Angela’s family said, in a statement: “This death penalty decision for sentencing is the only correct action and is supported by the family. And justice is served.”

Hosier’s attorneys have 25 days to file a motion for a new trial and other post-trial motions.

The jury also found Hosier guilty of armed criminal action, burglary and felony possession of a weapon.

Formal sentencing on all the convictions will be scheduled later.
