    BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A University of Idaho professor who gunned down a graduate student he had dated, then took his own life, had disclosed his bipolar disorder when he was hired in 2007.>>

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Newly released documents show a University of Idaho professor who committed suicide after killing a graduate student he had dated had previously talked about shooting students in his classroom and was targeted in a complaint alleging he was engaging in "sex orgies" with students.

The slain 22-year-old graduate student, Katy Benoit, complained to university officials in June that psychology professor Ernesto Bustamante had pointed a gun at her three times. Benoit was urged to take safety precautions and go to police.

A student evaluating Bustamante last fall complained his teaching was erratic and he had discussed shooting students. In December, a complaint called into a university hotline accused Bustamante of having sex with students and coercing one into having sex with himself and others. University officials have defended their response.
