ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A man who has been charged with killing an Alaska couple and raping their 2-year-old great-granddaughter is a registered sex offender convicted of breaking into a home and assaulting an 11-year-old girl four years ago.
Jerry Andrew Active was convicted of assaulting the girl near Dillingham, Alaska, while her family slept. Active, 24, was also convicted of fighting members of that family.
On Saturday, authorities say Active broke into the home of 71-year-old Touch Chea and his 73-year-old wife Sorn Sreap, killing them with blunt force. He was still inside the residence when their grandson and his wife arrived but fled.
The Anchorage Daily News reported (http://bit.ly/12JJaF5) Monday that Active was charged with violating his probation this spring but it's not clear what kind of correctional supervision he was under.
