“The Shield” Actor Charged For Wife’s Death

Michael Jace, who played a Los Angeles cop in TV’s “The Shield,” has been charged in the fatal shooting of his wife, police said Tuesday.

April Jace, 40, was found shot to death in her south Los Angeles home by police called there to investigate a shooting, Los Angeles Police Detective Lyman Doster said.

Investigators detained Jace, 51, at the couple’s Hyde Park area home Monday night and booked the actor on a homicide charge early Tuesday, according to Doster.

Though “The Shield” was the biggest and longest-running role in Jace’s 22-year acting career, he also starred in “Southland”” and had the title role of Michael Jordan in the 1999 TV movie, “Michael Jordan: An American Hero.”
