Actor Michael Jace, best known for his detective role in The Shield, has been charged with murder after shooting his wife to death in their home in Loa Angeles Monday night.
Jace called 911 himself after the shooting and simply said, ‘I shot my wife.’ His neighbors as well as his two under-10 children witnessed the shooting.
Jace remained on the phone until police arrived and took him for questioning. Four hours later, he was arrested and charged.
According to TMZ, Jace shot his 40-year old wife April after a heated argument over money. Jace was reportedly lagging behind in mortgage and had filed for bankruptcy last year. He was given a golden chance to pay up his mortgage but he blew it, triggering a family conflict that ended tragically on Monday night.
The site also reports that Jace had physically assaulted his ex-wife Jennifer Bitterman numerous times in front of their kid, but April defended him throughout his divorce battle with Bitterman, which ended in 1997.
