An actor who once appeared on a children’s TV series pleaded guilty in a case in which he was accused of stabbing his roommate to death with a sword.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Ricardo Medina, 38, entered the plea Thursday in court in Antelope Valley, in the northern section of Los Angeles County.
Medina is best known for playing Cole Evans, the Red Wild Force Ranger, on the TV show “Power Rangers Wild Force” in the early 2000s. He has also had a number of other TV appearances, including guest spots on “ER” and “CSI: Miami.”
Medina reportedly pleaded guilty to a felony count of voluntary manslaughter. Prosecutors said he faces up to six years in state prison.
“Medina was charged with first-degree murder in January 2016, one year after the fatal clash. Investigators said Medina and [Joshua] Sutter had argued over the way Medina’s girlfriend had parked her car minutes before the stabbing,” The Times reports. “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.”
