New Jersey native Michael Jace, best known for his role in “The Shield,” is facing homicide charges in the death of his wife April on Monday.
Jace, born in Paterson, is living in Hyde Park, southwest of Los Angeles.
Police believe the motive for the murder is domestic violence. Los Angeles Police Detective Dean Vinluan said the 51-year old Jace called 911 and reported that his wife had been shot, according to CNN. Jace was booked on homicide charges on Tuesday.
There have been domestic violence accusations against Jace in the past. The actor divorced Jennifer Bitterman in 2002, and a friend of hers named Maria De La Vega said she saw an incident in 1996.
