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