Former 'Power Rangers' actor admits killing roommate with sword

Don't miss a thing.

"According to the district attorney's office, Medina got into an argument over Medina's girlfriend with his roommate, 36-year-old Josh Sutter, on January 31, 2015". They then claim that Ricardo took a sword that he owned and kept in the home and used it to stab Josh multiple times until he was dead. The ex-Power Ranger - best known for his role as Cole Evans (the Red Ranger) in 2002's "Power Rangers Wild Force" - now faces up to six years in state prison. Had he been convicted of murder, Medina would have faced 26 years to life in jail.

Note: An earlier version of this story stated that Medina pleaded no contest, based on the initial report from Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.

The actor was released after the District Attorney's office rejected the case, calling for the LA County Sheriff's Department to continue the investigation.

Although he originally pleaded not guilty to murder, the 38-year-old admitted to a charge of voluntary manslaughter on Thursday, KTLA reported.

Sutter was rushed to hospital where he later died.

The murder occurred after Medina and Stutter became engaged in an argument over the former's ex girlfriend.

Power Rangers Samurai, which was on screens from 2011 to 2012, was his last listed acting job.

He has also starred in ER, CSI and Bad Blood.

When he was released from the jail a year ago, Medina said he was "very, very, very sorry for what occurred". That season of the Power Rangers was actually split in two, with Power Rangers Super Samurai making up the second set of 20 episodes in 2012.
