Man indicted in 2005 killings of 6 people in Yuma

YUMA, AZ - A man already serving a life prison sentence for a 2007 murder has been accused of killing six people in Yuma two years earlier.

Preston Alton Strong has been indicted by a Yuma County grand jury on six counts of first-degree murder and one count each of robbery and burglary.

Police say a 29-year-old woman and her four children ranging in age from 6 to 13 were found dead inside a Yuma house on June 24, 2005.

A 35-year-old man also was found with multiple gunshot wounds in the home's backyard and later died at a Yuma hospital.

Police say witnesses reported seeing a man walking back into the house after the shooting.

Strong is serving a life prison term with no chance for release for killing a Yuma physician.
