A former star of the Power Rangers TV series has been arrested in California for allegedly stabbing his room-mate to death with a sword.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said Ricardo Medina, 36, who played the Red Ranger on Power Rangers Wild Force in 2002 and later played Deker on Power Rangers Samurai, was in custody over the death of Joshua Sutter.

Police said Medina and Mr Sutter got into an argument on Saturday afternoon that turned into a fight.

Medina retreated to his bedroom with his girlfriend, but when Mr Sutter forced his way into the room, Medina grabbed a sword he kept near the door and stabbed his room-mate in the stomach, according to authorities. He then called emergency services and waited for help.
