Michael Jace pleads not guilty on murder charges 

Michael Jace, who played a cop on TV’s “The Shield,” pleaded not guilty to murder Wednesday in the death of his wife and was ordered to stay away from his two young sons.

The Associated Press reports that Jace entered the plea through his attorneys and was told by a judge to stay away from his two children and not contact them if he is eventually released on $2 million bail.

Jace, 51, is accused of shooting his wife, April Jace, to death May 19 in their Los Angeles home. The children, both under 10, were home at the time and unharmed.

Jace’s attorney Jason Sias said his client might seek a reduction of his bail at a future hearing, and that he did not contest the protective order involving his children because he wants to do what is best for them.

The actor is scheduled to return to court Aug. 1 for a possible preliminary hearing involving evidence in the case.
