Police responded to a call of domestic violence and arrived at his home in the Hyde Park area of L.A. on May 19.  Jace placed to call to 911 himself and told the operator, "I shot my wife."

Police took the former actor into custody, where he was detained until being arrested and booked for the murder of his wife the next day.  May 22, 2014, Michael Jace was formally charged with murder by the Los Angeles County D.A. and he's been in custody since ever since then.  During the murder trial, the truth behind the shooting came out.  Apparently the actor thought his wife was seeing someone else and was upset that she wanted a divorce.  30 minutes before calling 911, Jace shot his wife several times in front of their two sons, who were 5 and 8 years old at the time.

Yesterday the once celebrated actor, was found guilty and convicted of second degree murder.  Now he's looking at 40 to life.  His sentencing will take place next week on June 10.  The sad thing is, people who commit these crimes NEVER consider the children. The Jace kids lost both of their parents in one day.  All they have now is the memory of watching their father murder, their mother to haunt them for the rest of their lives.
