LOS ANGELES (AP) — Court records reveal a lengthy criminal record for the man accused of breaking into LL Cool J's California home, where authorities say the actor-rapper subdued him.
Jonathan A. Kirby's criminal history includes a manslaughter conviction in Texas.
Kirby has yet to make a court appearance on a charge that he broke into the "NCIS: Los Angeles" actor's house early Wednesday. LL Cool J, whose real name is James Todd Smith, subdued Kirby, who was hospitalized with a broken nose, jaw and ribs.
Records show Kirby was convicted of voluntary manslaughter in Dallas in 1988 and sentenced to six years imprisonment. He was paroled the following year and has a string of convictions in Los Angeles beginning in 1990.
Prosecutors say Kirby should be treated as a third-strike offender and face 38 years to life in prison if convicted.
Smith and his family were unharmed.
