Newsclip®: [Entertainment] Prosecutor: 'Shield' actor taunted wife before killing her - San Francisco Chronicle

"LOS ANGELES (AP) — An actor who played a police officer on TV was upset because his wife wanted a divorce and taunted her before fatally shooting her in their Los Angeles home while their two young sons watched, a prosecutor told jurors Tuesday. Deputy District Attorney Tannaz Mokayef made the accusations against Michael Jace during her opening statement at his murder trial. Defense attorney Jamon Hicks acknowledged that his client had killed his wife and said the defense team would try to explain the actor's mindset when it happened. When she arrived, the prosecutor said, Michael Jace shot her in the back before firing two more rounds into her legs within sight of their sons — 8 and 5 at the time. April Jace was an avid runner and Mokayef said the actor shot her in the legs because he wanted her to feel pain.",
