In case you missed it, on Friday, June 10, Michael Jace, best known for his role on “The Shield” was sentenced to 40 years in prison for fatally shooting his wife, April Jace, last April in front of their two sons, who were 8 and 5 at the time, in their Los Angeles home.

During the sentencing, Jace apologized for the heinous act: “There is absolutely no justification for my actions on that night,” he said, according to Associated Press. “I am profoundly sorry for the pain that I’ve caused everyone … There was no premeditated anything.”


To our surprise, Jace joins a long (and disturbing) list of stars with sketchy pasts including arson, assault and murder. For a list of celebs linked to an array of violent crimes, hit the flip.
