Former Power Rangers actor pleads not guilty to roommate’s murder

A former Power Rangers actor charged with stabbing his California roommate to death with a sword has pleaded not guilty to murder.

City News Service says Ricardo Medina Jr. entered the plea in Lancaster, Calif. He could face 26 years to life in prison if convicted.

Prosecutors say Medina stabbed Joshua Sutter several times in the abdomen last year at their house in Green Valley, a mountain town north of Los Angeles.

The two allegedly were arguing over Medina’s girlfriend.

Authorities say after the attack, Medina called the emergency dispatcher and waited for police to arrive. He initially claimed self-defence, according to officials.

Medina played the Red Lion Wild Force Ranger on Power Rangers Wild Force in 2002. He was the voice of Deker on Power Rangers Samurai in 2011 and 2012.
