A 69-year-old Missouri inmate convicted of murdering his former lover and her husband was executed late Tuesday, officials said.

David Hosier received a single-dose injection of pentobarbital at Bonne Terre State Prison and was declared dead minutes later at 6:11 p.m.

“I leave you all with love,” Hosier’s final statement read. “Now I get to go to Heaven. Don’t cry for me. Just join me when your time comes.”

He was convicted of the 2009 fatal shootings of Angela and Rodney Gilpin near their apartment.

    “If you are going with someone do not lie to them. Be honest with them if there is something wrong. If you do not this could happen to YOU!”
