Actor Michael Jace has finally reached the end of his trial and received his prison sentence on Friday.
The former Shield actor was sentenced to 40 years to life for the murder of his wife, April Jace. Last month, a jury found the 53-year-old guilty of second degree murder after he admitted to fatally shooting his wife in May 2014 (once in the back and twice in the legs in their Hyde Park, New York, home).
Jace’s defense attorney, Jamon Hicks, initially asked for voluntary manslaughter, arguing that the killing was not planned and was in the heat of passion. But a prosecutor told jurors that Jace was upset because April, 40, wanted a divorce and believed she was having an affair, although evidence that she was cheating was not presented during the trial.
Jace leaves behind two sons with his wife April, and another child from a previous marriage.
