Almost one year after he was arrested for allegedly fatally stabbing his roommate, former "Power Rangers" actor Ricardo Medina has been charged with murder.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced the charge this week in connection with the January 31, 2015 incident, in which Medina is said to have stabbed his roommate, Josh Sutter, following an argument in their apartment. Medina, who was arrested again on Wednesday, faces one count of murder, and could spend 26 years to life in prison if convicted.
Authorities say that Medina and Sutter got into an argument over Medina's girlfriend, and the altercation became physical. Medina allegedly stabbed Sutter multiple times with a sword, per law enforcement.
Medina was originally arrested at the time of the incident, but claimed he stabbed Sutter in self defense. He was not charged at that time, and was soon released from police custody. His arrest this week came after the DA's office spent additional time investigating the incident.
The actor's arraignment is set for Tuesday is Los Angeles County Court. Prosecutors are expected to request that Medina's bail be set at $1 million.
Medina appeared on both "Power Rangers Wild Force" and "Power Rangers Samurai" TV series. His other acting credits include stints on episodes of "E.R." and "CSI: Miami."
