PALMDALE, Calif. (AP) — The agent of a former "Power Rangers" actor arrested by Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies in the stabbing death of his housemate says the man must have acted in self-defense.
Gar Lester says he has represented actor Ricardo Medina for about a dozen years, back to when Medina played the Red Ranger on "Power Rangers Wild Force."
On Monday, Lester called Medina a "sweet soul" who must have been acting in self-defense.
Deputies arrested Medina on Saturday. Their investigation found that he got into a fight with his housemate, who later forced open the door of Medina's bedroom.
Authorities said Medina stabbed Joshua Sutter in the abdomen with a sword, then called 911 and waited for help.
Medina remained in custody Monday at the sheriff's station in Palmdale.
