An actor who played a police officer on the TV show “The Shield” has been sentenced to 40 years to life in prison for killing his wife. Michael Jace was sentenced Friday in Los Angeles after being convicted of second-degree murder in the killing of April Jace. At the emotional sentencing hearing, Jace apologized to the family and said there was no justification for his actions. The 53-year-old Jace acknowledged fatally shooting his wife in May 2014. His attorney told jurors that Jace acted in the heat of passion. Prosecutors cited damning testimony from the couple’s 10-year-old son, who told jurors that he heard his father say, “‘If you like running, then run to heaven,'” before firing the second gunshot.
