Los Angeles County prosecutors revealed on Tuesday that they are holding off their decision to charge 36-year-old Power Rangers Wild Force actor Ricardo Medina Jr. after Medina allegedly fatally stabbed his 36-year-old roommate Joshua Sutter with a sword.
Los Angeles County district attorney spokesperson Ricardo Santiago said that prosecutors asked the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department for "further investigation" before they decide whether to charge Medina for the incident.
According to the sheriff's deputies, Sutter had forced his way into Medina's bedroom, where Medina and his girlfriend were, during an altercation on Saturday afternoon. Medina then allegedly stabbed Sutter once in the abdomen with a sword he kept next to the door. Medina called 911 at about 3:50 p.m., and the detectives interviewed him at their Palmdale Station.
Medina played Cole Evans or Red Lion Wild Force Ranger in Power Rangers Wild Force, and he also played Deker in Power Rangers Samurai.
