On Saturday, authorities say 24 year old Jerry Andrew 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. The couple tried to detain him but he fled.   Anchorage police said the man was arrested Saturday night as he fled the east Anchorage homicide scene dressed only in boxer shorts and socks

Active was convicted of breaking into a home and assaulting an 11-year-old girl four years ago near Dillingham, while her family slept. Active was also convicted of fighting members of that family.

The Anchorage Daily News reported Monday that Active was charged with violating his probation this spring but it’s not clear what kind of correctional supervision he was under.
