The 49-year-old Waipahu man who prompted the lockdown of three Nanakuli schools Tuesday afternoon was convicted of manslaughter in 1984 in a stabbing death and is on parole after a terroristic threatening conviction last year.

Hawaii Paroling Authority records show that Gerald L. Fuentes, originally charged with murder, pleaded no contest to manslaughter in the stabbing death of a 25-year-old woman in her North Kona apartment in 1983. He served six years of a 10-year sentence and completed his parole in 1994.

Fuentes also was convicted last year of terroristic threatening, a class C felony, and is serving five years’ probation. He was convicted three times for misdemeanor abuse of a family or household member, twice last year and previously in 1995.

Fuentes was charged tonight with kidnaping, abuse of a household member, auto theft and fourth-degree theft. His bail was set at $300,000.
