US actor Michael Jace, who appeared on all 7 seasons of The Shield, has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for the murder of his wife.
Jace shot his wife April Jace at their home in LA in front of their two sons, the Los Angeles district attorney’s office said.
She was reportedly shot multiple times. The couple were married for 11 years, but but were apparently planning to divorce when the killing occurred.
Last month, lawyers argued that his actions in May 2014 should have been considered manslaughter rather than murder because they were not premeditated.
Jace played Detective Julien Lowe on The Shield from 2002 – 2008 and also had appearances in Boogie Nights, Forrest Gump and Southland.
