Ricardo Medina Jr. — who starred on two installments in the Power Rangers franchise — has reportedly been arrested and charged with murder after allegedly killing his roommate with a sword.
According to the report, the 37-year-old was arrested on Saturday, Jan. 30, by authorities in Palmdale, Calif., after a fight broke out between the actor and his roommate, Joshua Sutter.

Medina retreated to his bedroom with his girlfriend after the altercation, but Sutter forced his way in — and Medina responded by allegedly stabbing his roommate in the abdomen with the sword.
He then reportedly called 911 and was arrested and booked for murder when the cops arrived. Sutter was taken to a local hospital, where he was then pronounced dead.
