Actor Charged With Killing His Wife

Actor Charged With Killing His Wife

Actor Michael Jace, 51, is charged with murdering his wife, according to published reports.

“I shot my wife,” Jace told police after calling 911 Monday night, gossip tabloid TMZ reports.

April Jace, 40, was found dead in the couple’s south Los Angeles home by police at about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. She was shot to death.

The couple is pictured above in a photo dated Jan. 01, 2006 at the LA Premiere Screening of his TV series The Shield, Season 5, in which he played a gay cop who struggled with his sexual preferences.

LAPD Lt. John Jenal told the Los Angeles Daily News that the couple’s two sons were present in the home at the time of the shooting. The children are in protective custody, Jenal said.

Jace is known for his roles on the TV series “The Shield”, “Southland”, and for his role as NBA great Michael Jordan in the 1999 TV movie “Michael Jordan: An American Hero.”

“He was a very cool guy, and always very cordial,” said Chester Taylor, a 72-year-old neighbor.

Taylor said he often saw the 6′-4″ actor walking his German Shepherd in the neighborhood.

“It’s really a shame about the two boys,” he added. “And I don’t know what’ll become of that dog.”

    What a terribly sad story. God bless their poor babies.

    I found it very interesting that they lived in a very modest house is a neighborhood that isn’t the safest in the world. I’m sure their interesting circumstances will be dragged through the mud before it’s all over.

    it would prob be more ‘sensational’ if they lived in a mansion inside a gated community :shrug:
    and no matter where people live, it seems that the local response is always “i never thought anything like that would happen here” and sometimes that’s even the response in decidedly ‘bad’ neighborhoods

    Jace was home alone when his wife arrived with their kids … a short time later he allegedly shot her.

    Jace’s 2 kids witnessed him allegedly shooting and killing their mom. The kids — both under 10 — were extremely upset and taken to the police station. We’re told cops are angry it took Children’s Services 4 hours to get to the station and take the kids to the home of a family member where they could be comforted.

    thats terrible luvie. their childhood is forever tarnished :cry:

  31. 31

    now if i WAS to speculate… i’d say it was real real serious, like maybe one of the boys aint his? there was infidelity? she wanted out? he was just plain crazy? :think:

    @Luvvie they are both under the age of 10 and I think they were there. They said Daddy shot/killed Mommy. The cops were pissed because they said it took DPS 4 hrs to come get the boys so that they could be with family members.

    Maybe it’s a Southern thing, but all of the older men I know LOVE dogs. Honey Dip’s Pop-Pop just lost his dog about a month ago, so we had to call and check on him. He wouldn’t speak with anyone for about a week.

    I’ve seen many older men sitting on the porch and sharing whatever he’s eating (Moon Pies, fruit, uncooked hot dogs with saltine crackers) with his dog :lol: Maybe I’m just country.

    I just dont understand it. Everyday, I see a story about someone killing someone else who they SUPPOSEDLY love so much, just because the other person is done with the relationship. To me, even if you dont give a chit about me and MY life, at LEAST care enough about your children to NOT take their mother away from them. This type of “Crime of Passion” chit is just :facepalm: fuggin ridiculous. You so weak and selfish that if I dont want to be with you, you gone take me out??!! ole bytch azz

    One thing that I miss SEW much. I feel bad when I tell Lil Butter no when he asks to buy watermelon from the store. I have never paid more than $0.50 for a watermelon, so $6 seems like highway robbery :nono:

    Those poor boys. :smh: That dog statement was random though. I like dogs, but to me it seems like people care more about them than humans.

    I have seen some folks call cops on people about mistreating a dog (i.e. a guy called the cops on someone because she had tied her dog up to a pole outside of a restaurant while she went in to eat), but will just look away when they see a human being mistreated. :tea:

    For a friggin watermelon! And they’re just medium sized. When I was in college, my dude was a truck driver. We loaded up melons and took them to Athens. Sold the watermelons for $5 each and made a killing. The next time he brought cantaloupes too. I ate good off that money for a while.
