Ricardo Medina Jr, former Power Rangers star, was reportedly charged with the 2015 death of his roommate Joshua Sutter on Thursday.

‘Power Rangers’ Star Ricardo Medina Jr. Charged With Murder

Medina, 36, was arrested Thursday morning on a felony complaint and according to a press release from the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, prosecutors will ask that Medina’s bail be set at $1 million.

“As far as I know, nothing has changed since a year ago when Rickey was first arrested. From the evidence I am aware of, he is as innocent now as he was then,” Medina’s attorney Allen Bell told E! in a statement.

“I have not received any additional information and presumably will know more Tuesday at his arraignment,” the lawyer added.

Medina’s arrest on Thursday results from the Jan. 31, 2015 incident in which Medina’s roommate Joshua Sutter was fatally stabbed.

Medina and Sutter allegedly got into an argument over Medina’s girlfriend, and Medina alledgedly stabbed Sutter multiple times with a sword after the argument turned physical.

The Power Rangers star was arrested for the stabbing about a year ago, but claimed that it was self-defense and was released.

If convicted, Medina faces 26 years to life in state prison. The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
