This story just keeps getting worse.
Michael Jace, best known for playing gay police officer Julian Lowe on FX's The Shield had a very abusive and violent past with his ex-wife, which sadly explains a lot…
Since he was just arrested in connection to his current partner April Jace's murder in cold blood, with their children allegedly present.
According to legal documents from a prior divorce in 1997, a friend of ex-wife Jennifer Bitterman claimed she witnessed the actor choking and slamming her pal against a wall — all while their 6-month-old son screamed in his crib next to the brawl.
In the dramatic first hand account, the friend revealed:
"seeing the extent of his anger was one of the most terrifying things I have ever seen."
We STILL cannot believe all of this tragedy transpiring, and continue to pray for the kids involved.
