KTUU reports Jerry Active claimed during Friday’s sentencing that he is innocent and didn’t receive a fair trial.

He was found guilty in April of 10 felony charges, including two counts of first-degree murder and multiple counts of sexual assault.

Active was 24 when accused of the May 25, 2013, beating deaths of 73-year-old Sorn Sreap and her 71-year-old husband, Touch Chea.

Active was also accused of sexually assaulting Sreap, her 2-year-old family member and her 91-year-old mother.

The Associated Press normally doesn’t identify victims of sexual assault, but Sreap’s family appeared in local news media to talk about the case.
