LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) – An actor who co-starred in the “Power Rangers Wild Force” television series, Ricardo Medina, has been arrested on suspicion of stabbing a roommate to death with a sword in Southern California.
Stemmed from an argument between the suspect and the victim that turned violent, the slaying happened on Saturday afternoon in Palmdale, California, north of Los Angeles.
The 36-year-old Medina returned to his bedroom with his girlfriend during the fight, but his roommate, Joshua Sutter, followed them and forced to open the door, according to the incident account provided by sheriff’s deputies.
Medina is then accused of stabbing Stutter once in the stomach with a sword kept next to his bedroom door. He then called emergency 911 and remained at the scene until sheriff’s deputies arrived.
The actor who played the Red Lion Wild Force Ranger was later jailed on suspicion of murder, after being interviewed by homicide detectives, said the sheriff’s department.
