David Hosier, sentenced to death in Missouri, executed for the murder of his ex-lover

Missouri executed death row inmate David Hosier by lethal injection on Tuesday, making it its second execution in the state this year and the seventh in the nation.

Hosier was pronounced dead at 6:11 p.m. after receiving a 5-gram dose of pentobarbital, Karen Pojmann of the Missouri Department of Corrections told USA TODAY.

Hosier, 69, was convicted in the shooting death of his former lover, Angela Gilpin, a married mother of two, in 2009. Gilpin was seeing Hosier while she was separated from her husband, but decided to do run her marriage and broke it up with Hosier, angering him, according to court records.

A neighbor found the bodies of Gilpin and her husband Rodney on her apartment doorstep early one September morning. 28, 2009. Prosecutors dropped murder charges against Hosier for Rodney’s killing.
