An actor from Green Valley who formerly starred in the "Power Rangers" television series pleaded guilty Thursday for stabbing his roommate to death, officials said.
On January 31, 2015, Medina and his 36-year-old roommate Josh Sutter engaged in an argument over Medina's girlfriend. Medina grabbed a sword he kept by the door and stabbed Sutter multiple times before calling 911, police said.
Ricardo now faces six years in prison (really?) and is scheduled to be sentenced later this month.
Actor Ricardo Medina is pictured at the Lambda Legal Liberty Awards at the Egyptian Theater on September 28, 2005, in Hollywood.
In its report, the Huffington Post also quoted Medina's attorney, Allen Bell, who stressed in 2015 that it was all about his client trying to defend himself from the supposedly aggressive and violent Sutter.
According to The Guardian, Medina and Sutter got into an argument.
In court, Josh Sutter's father, Donald Sutter, denied that his son could have been the aggressor.
"It is a self-defense case".
"Josh don't have that in his heart to attack anybody".
One of the stars of children's show "Power Rangers" just plead guilty to voluntary manslaughter. His other acting credits include a 2003 episode of "E.R." and a 2004 episode of "CSI: Miami".
While no picnic, to say the least, that's a far cry from the life sentence Medina was looking at when he was arrested on a murder charge in January 2016.
He later reappeared as the villain Deker in Power Rangers Samurai in 2011 and its follow-up Power Rangers Super Samurai in 2012.
