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.

According to the district attorney's office, Medina got into an argument over Medina's girlfriend with his roommate, 36-year-old Josh Sutter, on January 31, 2015. Sutter's sister also told LA Times taht the six-year sentence is not long enough.

The stabbing occurred as the two men got into an argument over Medina's girlfriend, authorities said.

According to a report from the Los Angeles Daily News, the 38-year-old Medina made his guilty plea at a Lancaster, California courtroom dressed in a yellow prison shirt as a judge informed him of his rights. 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.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Sutter moved to Los Angeles in 2011 to help his sister, who specializes in selling rescued dogs. However, Medina was released two days later. Medina claimed he acted in self defense, and prosecutors waited a year before filing a murder charge. He was first arrested and charged with his roommate's murder in January 2016 and has remained in custody since then.

Medina's attorney, Allen Bell, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

He will face up to six years in prison.

Power Rangers Samurai, which was on screens from 2011 to 2012, was his last listed acting job. He has also appeared on such prime-time shows as "CSI: Miami" and "ER".
