Michael Jace

Dead Wife Testified Jace Was Great Dad

EXCLUSIVE

5020-michael-april-jace-with-swipe-tmz-02Michael Jace's dead wife April DEFENDED her husband in his divorce from his ex-wife ... an ex-wife he allegedly brutally and repeatedly beat.

April Jace -- who was killed by a gunshot at the hands of Michael -- got involved in Michael's messy divorce to his previous wife and defended him to the hilt ... even though there were claims of brutality.

April told the divorce judge that Michael provided a stable home for his child, though she never addressed the claims he choked and hit Jennifer Bitterman and slammed her against the wall in front of their screaming son.

In fact April actually attacked Jennifer by calling her a bad mom.

The most bone-chilling thing .... April talked about Michael's son with Jennifer, saying, "Usually at bedtime, he [Jordan, the child] prays for his mom and asks God to protect her while he's not there with her."

And this is interesting  ... April had a degree in Early Childhood/Adolescence development.

Ya cuz shooting your wife in the face in front of the kids is a great role model.
Or is he great because he didnt shoot his kids in the face as well.
Such low low standards. I guess when you scrape the bottom of the barrel anything is great

She defended him to the courts that he was a good father...She did not address the beatings, maybe she had no idea at that time that he was a violent man.

Abused women often defend their abusers out of irrational guilt and fear, it's not uncommon

Quite superfluous reporting, in regards to the child.
Nearly-impossible to verify.

In court you answer specifically what the judge asks and I'm guessing the judge asked if he provided sufficiently financially and that's what she answered to in the affirmative.
