Medina stabbed Joshua Sutter to death on Jan. 31, 2015, following an argument in the home the two shared in Green Valley, a mountain town north of Los Angeles.

Friedman said the argument, over Medina’s girlfriend, began in the kitchen and that she and Medina fled to his bedroom and locked the door when it became heated. When Sutter broke through the door, Friedman said, Medina stabbed him with a sword he kept in the room.

Medina played the Red Lion Wild Force Ranger on “Power Rangers Wild Force” in 2002. He was the voice of Deker on “Power Rangers Samurai” in 2011 and 2012 and also appeared in such shows as “ER” and “CSI: Miami.”

Sutter’s father told the judge no one would look at Medina as a celebrity again.
