Former “Power Rangers” star Ricardo Medina was arrested for the 2015 murder of his roommate.

The 36-year old performer is best known for his role as the Red Ranger on “Power Rangers Wild Force” and was arrested Wednesday morning for stabbing his roommate, Josh Sutter to death. Officials say the incident happened on Jan. 31, 2015 in Green Valley following an argument over Medina’s girlfriend. The argument became physical and Medina allegedly stabbed Sutter several times with a sword.

Medina is set for an arraignment on Tuesday at the Antelope Valley Branch of the Los Angeles County Superior Court. Prosecutors will request the bail to be set at $1 million. If convicted, Medina faces 26 years to life in state prison.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the case.
