Murder suspect had been released from jail hours before killings.

The man accused of killing an elderly couple and raping their 2 year old great granddaughter had been released from jail less than 12 hours before the crime occured.

At 8:09 a.m. Saturday, Jerry Active was released from the Anchorage Correctional Center.

He was arrested Saturday night after the couple's grandson and his wife arrived home to find them dead and their daughter being assaulted.

He has been charged with murder, sexual assault, sexual abuse of a minor and burglary.
Bail was set at 1-point-5 million dollars.

Records show that in 2009, Active was arrested for sneaking into a Togiak home and attempting to rape an 11-year-old girl while the family slept.
In 2010, he was convicted in a Dillingham court on charges of attempted sexual abuse of a minor.

In the fall of 2011, he was released and put on probation, but repeatedly violated the conditions, sometimes being arrested the same day he was freed.

From Oct. 2, 2011 to the moment police arrested him Saturday as he allegedly fled the scene of the killings, Active had spent 18 days on the outside, according to a timeline released by the Department of Corrections.
