Great question!
You can achieve that by entering the hyphen first and then the properties in a new line, like so:

    name: George
    last-name: Orwell
    name: Stephen
    last-name: King

Which will translate to JSON as:

        "name": "George",
        "last-name": "Orwell"
        "name": "Stephen",
        "last-name": "King"

Also here's a nice online tool I've been using to try the YAML syntax and see its JSON counterpart.
