Sutter was fatally stabbed on Jan. 31, 2015 at a house the two men shared in Green Valley. The incident occurred after the roommates allegedly got into an argument concerning Medina's girlfriend.

During the purported argument, Medina allegedly "stabbed Sutter multiple times with a sword," according to the District Attorney's Office.

Medina was arrested last year in connection to the case, but was later released pending further evidence. At the time, Medina claimed he was acting in self-defense.
