‘The Shield’ Actor Michael Jace Arrested In Connection With The Murder Of His Wife April Jace
From The YBF:
Michael Jace, famed for roles in “The Shield” and “Southland”, was taken into custody in the wee hours of this morning and booked for homicide in connection with the death of wife, April Jace. TMZ reports that Michael called LAPD late last night saying, “I shot my wife.” He stayed on the phone with them until they arrived at his home in the Hyde Park area of LA.
Cops told TMZ that Michael’s two kids, both under the age of ten, allegedly saw him pull the trigger and kill their mom. Horrific.
Officer Sara Faden told the LA Times, “It looks to have started as a domestic-related incident.”
In another shocking piece of the unfortunate story, it took Children’s Services 4 hours to arrive at the police station and take the kids to the home of a family member. See video of the arrest here.
