Ricardo Medina Jr. of 'Power Rangers Super Samurai' fame has pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter.
The peculiar court case, which has coincidentally taken place just in time for the release of the franchise's movie reboot, certainly adds new meaning to the phrase "Go Go Power Rangers".

The incident in question, which actually happened two years ago, saw the 38-year-old kill his roommate Josh Sutter with a double-edged sword following an argument over his girlfriend.

Medina's defense team argued that Sutter had broken down a bedroom door in order to reach him and that the weapon, which had been the only thing on-hand at the time, was used in self defense.
The initial charge of first-degree murder was ultimately reduced to voluntary manslaughter.

"I think it's a good resolution for both parties," said Medina's attorney Stanley Friedman.

Having first appeared as the Red Lion Wild Force Ranger in the "Power Rangers Wild Force" series, Medina later returned in "Power Rangers Super Samurai" as well.

In total he has appeared in 64 episodes of the franchise.

Of course I didn't, I was recalling from memory. Looks like you didn't bother to read either..   "Prosecutors said Medina had argued with his roommate, 36-year-old Josh Sutter, over Medina's girlfriend on Jan. 31, 2015, in their Los Angeles County home. They said when the argument became physical, Medina stabbed Sutter multiple times with a sword."

Now they need to imprison the rest on charges of "brutal psychological torture towards parents present in the room when televised".....
