A Former Power Rangers Actor Was Charged for Murder in a Way Too Devastating and Ironic for You to Handle

Power Rangers actor Ricardo Medina Jr. could serve 26 years in prison if convicted, but our childhood memories are imprisoned for life. After a yearlong case from January 2015, the 38-year-old has officially been charged for murdering his roommate Josh Sutter with a sword.


Deadline reports that the actor, who played the red Power Ranger, Cole Evans, in the Power Rangers Wild Force series, is currently being held in custody after he was charged by the LA County District Attorney’s office. He will be arraigned next Tuesday, January 19, and bail will reportedly be set at $1 million.

The incident took place on January 31, 2015, when Medina and his roommate were allegedly arguing over his girlfriend, and a physical altercation led him to stab Sutter (who was 36) multiple times in their Palmdale, California home. Charges had been previously dropped due to lack of evidence and Medina’s claim of using self-defense.
