Justice is served.

Michael Jace is going to jail for a VERY long time.

On Friday, The Shield alum was sentenced to 40 years to life in prison for murdering his wife, April. Back in 2014, the actor was arrested when cops arrived at his home to find his longtime love had died of gunshot wounds.

The 53-year-old was charged with killing the late athlete, and ultimately found guilty even though he pleaded the opposite.

The New Jersey native had told detectives he never intended to kill his wife, but did admit to shooting her, because he was angry that his spouse wanted a divorce.

And during his sentencing, Michael apologized to her family, saying there are "no justifications for his actions."

We're glad justice is being served, and our hearts are with everyone affected by April's tragic death.

Case closed.

The Shield actor Michael Jace went to trial last week for the 2014 murder of his wife April Jace after he shot her three times in front of their young children. As we told you, he claimed he "didn't intend" to kill her as he was just "angry" she supposedly wanted a divorce. Wow.

The 53-year-old has now officially been convicted of second-degree murder.

After deliberating for less than three hours, jurors decided to rule the crime as second-degree instead of first-degree as they did not believe the murder was premeditated.

He faces 40 years to life in prison when he's scheduled for sentencing on June 10.

We're sure this is an unbelievably difficult time for the Jace family, especially the former couple's two sons.

Tragic!

Former Shield Actor Michael Jace Says He Didn't Intend To Kill His Wife When He Shot Her

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersSad SadViolence

Michael Jace

It's been two years since Michael Jace shot his wife, and now new information is revealed as the case sees its day in court this week.

According to transcripts from The Shield actor's interview with detectives released during trial on Thursday, the 53-year-old said he never intended to kill April Jace when he shot her "in the leg" in front of their sons at their home back in 2014.

Jace told investigators:

"I was just angry. All I intended to do was shoot her in the leg. And then I shot her in the leg and that was it."

We're not sure exactly what he was expecting would happen when he shot her…

As evidence later showed, April was actually shot three times; once in the back and twice in the legs. According to CBS, the final shots were fired in the family's home — within sight of the couple's children who were then ages eight and five.

So so sad.

The eldest son testified in court this week saying during the shooting he heard his father tell his mother, who was an avid runner:

"If you like running, then run to heaven"

OMG — terrifying!!!

The actor's attorney is arguing that his client was upset because he suspected April was having an affair and wanted a divorce. His late wife had denied cheating in text messages before her murder.

At the time of the attack, Jace told detectives:

"I just ruined lives. Four lives. I mean, you could put the needle in my arm right now and be done. I'm fine with that."

But alas — he pleaded not guilty, which is why the murder trial is ongoing.

If convicted of first-degree murder, he could face 50 years to life in prison.

We'll keep you updated as the case progresses.

Michael Jace stood in court this morning and plead not guilty to murder after being arrested for the shooting death of his wife, April.

However, the 48-year-old actor best known for his role on The Shield allegedly told his in-laws that he shot his wife on the night of the killing!

April’s parents then called 9-1-1 to report the crime to police who later arrested Michael. You can hear the audio tape of that call (below).

Michael and April’s two young sons were also home at the time.

So tragic…

Authorities haven't released a motive as of yet but sources say
