LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Actor Michael Jace, who played a conflicted cop in the cable television drama “The Shield,” pleaded not guilty in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday to a charge of murdering his wife, prosecutors said.

Jace, 51, is accused of shooting and killing his 40-year-old wife April on May 19 in their South Los Angeles home before placing an emergency call himself.

The actor, who has appeared mostly in supporting roles on TV in the past 20 years, has been held on $2 million bail.
