Missouri Supreme Court denies death row inmate’s appeal

Cody Gregg was sentenced to 15 years in prison last week after he pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, according to court records.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Missouri Supreme Court judges have denied a death row inmate’s appeal. David Hosier was sentenced to death for killing Angela Gilpin in 2009.

The 64-year-old had a relationship with Gilpin while she was separated from her husband, who also was shot to death in her Jefferson City apartment. Hosier claims that his trial attorney did a poor job. He also says that the trial judge had a conflict of interest. Supreme Court judges disagreed.

A public defender for Hosier did not immediately return an Associated Press request for comment Tuesday.
