Former "Power Rangers" star Ricardo Medina Jr. has been sentenced to six years in prison after pleading guilty to a fatal sword stabbing that left his roommate dead.

Medina, who appeared on the series "Power Rangers Samurai," pleaded guilty to a felony count of voluntary manslaughter in the incident, which reportedly began when Medina got into an argument about his girlfriend with his roommate Josh Sutter, according to The Wrap.

The incident occurred in 2015. Prosecutors initially said Medina acted in self-defense, and Sutter attempted to break down Medina’s door, according to Stuff.

Medina was originally charged with one count of murder, and would have faced 26 years to life in prison if convicted on that charge, Fox News noted.

The actor entered a plea to voluntary manslaughter on Thursday and now faces six years in state prison.

Sutter’s sister Rachel Kennedy said her brother would have been celebrating his 38th birthday on Thursday.

Medina played the Red Lion Wild Force Ranger in "Power Rangers Wild Force" from 2002 to 2003. He played villain Derek in "Power Rangers Samurai" in 2011 and 2012.

Medina has also appeared in "CSI: Miami" and "ER."
