The Shield actor Michael Jace went to trial last week for the 2014 murder of his wife April Jace after he shot her three times in front of their young children. As we told you, he claimed he “didn’t intend” to kill her as he was just “angry” she supposedly wanted a divorce. Wow.
The 53-year-old has now officially been convicted of second-degree murder.
After deliberating for less than three hours, jurors decided to rule the crime as second-degree instead of first-degree as they did not believe the murder was premeditated.
He faces 40 years to life in prison when he’s scheduled for sentencing on June 10.
We’re sure this is an unbelievably difficult time for the Jace family, especially the former couple’s two sons.
