AK Prosecutors: No Additional Charges Against Man
Alaska prosecutors are declining to file an additional homicide charge against a 24-year-old man charged with murder in the home-invasion deaths of an elderly Anchorage couple
ANCHORAGE- Alaska prosecutors are declining to file an additional homicide charge against a 24-year-old man charged with murder in the home-invasion deaths of an elderly Anchorage couple, saying an autopsy of another woman in the house who later suffered a stroke shows she died of natural causes.
Jerry Active faces 10 felony counts, including charges of murder and sexual assault, in connection with the May 25 attack that took the lives of 73-year-old Sorn Sreap and her 71-year-old husband, Touch Chea May. The couple was found beaten to death.
Active also is accused of sexually assaulting Sreap, her young great-granddaughter and her 91-year-old mother, Sreap Yan, who had dementia.
Yan later suffered a stroke and died June 10.
Active's public defender did not immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday.
