A former Power Rangers actor was sentenced today to six years in state prison for the 2015 fatal stabbing of his roommate, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Ricardo Medina, 38, of Green Valley, was sentenced by Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Daviann Mitchell. Earlier this month, Medina pleaded guilty to one felony count of voluntary manslaughter and admitted an allegation of using a sword in the killing.

Deputy District Attorney Tannaz Mokayef of the Major Crimes Division prosecuted the case.

On Jan. 31, 2015, the defendant argued with his roommate, Josh Sutter, 36, over Medina’s girlfriend. The argument turned physical and Medina fatally stabbed Sutter multiple times with a sword.

Case MA067742 was investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
