Former Power Rangers Actor Pleads Guilty to Killing Roommate with Sword

Former Red Power Ranger Killed His Roommate with a Sword

Red Power Ranger Ricardo Medina

Former Red Power Rangers pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter for stabbing his roommate to death with a sword.

38 year old Ricardo Medina admitted in court that he killed roommate Josh Sutter during a dispute in January of 2015. Medina faces up to six years in state prison when he is sentenced this month. Apparently investigators said Medina and Sutter had argued over the way Medina’s girlfriend had parked her car before Medina stabbed Sutter. Jeez.

LA Times reported:

As the argument continued, investigators said, Sutter forced his way into Medina’s room. Medina grabbed a sword he kept by the door and stabbed Sutter multiple times before calling 911, police said.

Medina initially claimed that he acted in self-defense. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, when asked by a reporter in 2016 why it waited a year to charge Medina, did not offer an explanation.
