Ricardo Medina Jr. - who played the Red Power Ranger - pleaded guilty to a felony count of voluntary manslaughter, admitting an allegation of using a sword in his roommate's killing. Don't miss a thing.
He was accused of killing 36-year-old Josh Sutter with a samurai sword in an argument over Medina's girlfriend at the end of January 2015.
Ricardo Medina Jr. admitted on Thursday that he killed Josh Sutter in January 2015, the Los Angeles Times reports. Detectives reported Medina and Sutter had argued over the way Medina's girlfriend had parked the vehicle just before Medina stabbed Sutter with a sword.
He faces up to six years in state prison when he is sentenced later this month, prosecutors said.
Medina originally faced 26 years to life in prison if he was convicted.

TMZ reported previous year that Sutter's family believed Medina was charged with murder because evidence didn't back up his self-defense story. Sutter died of his injuries. Medina claims he stabbed his roommate with his sword as an act of self defense. That report cited a separate account from BBC News, which suggested Medina was merely trying to protect himself from Sutter when the stabbing occurred. Medina could be heard talking to Sutter, seen below, after the attack.
In court, Josh Sutter's father, Donald Sutter, denied that his son could have been the aggressor.
