Michael Jace Sentenced to 40 Years to Life for Murdering Wife

Michael Jace appears in court for his sentencing on Friday (June 10) at Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center in Los Angeles.

The 53-year-old actor, best known for his work on The Shield, was sentenced to 40 years to life in prison for murdering his wife.

Michael was found guilty of second-degree murder after shooting his wife two years ago. He says that he never intended to hurt his wife and was planning on taking his own life, but took aim at her instead.

“I was just angry,” Jace said. “All I intended to do was shoot her in the leg. And then I shot her in the leg and that was it.”
