JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Jurors from St. Charles County in Missouri deliberated for just over an hour, then convicted David Hosier of first-degree murder for killing Angela Gilpin in September 2009.

They also found the former Logansport man guilty of armed criminal action, burglary and being a felon in possession of a weapon. The jury returns at 9 a.m. Thursday to decide if Hosier should get the death penalty for the murder conviction.

The trial of a Jefferson City man accused of killing a couple just over four years ago started on Monday.

This report will be updated.
