Michael Jace

Dead Wife Testified Jace Was Great Dad

5/20/2014 11:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

Sounds like April had a vested interest. Did she break up the marriage?

TMZ your writers suck. What was "bone chilling" about the son praying for his mom while he was away on visitation with his dad? She wasn't with the killer dad! And she wasn't the one killed. Bone-chilling? smh

If your in danger and have kids IT'S YOUR JOB TO LEAVE TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND KIDS. IF YOUR DATING A AGGRESSIVE MAN AND WISH TO STAY.....DON'T HAVE KIDS TO SUFFER WITH YOUR POOR CHOICE. BTW GOOD JOB TO MR. MICHAEL JACE PARENTS YOU MUST BE SO PROUD!

I'm sorry this happened to April Jace. I try stressing to women all the time stop being against each other. Just because you with a new guy and he haven't been abusive towards you yet doesn't mean he want do it later. She went against his ex-wife now to find out the ex- wife is telling the truth. Women of every race please wake up and stop being against each other.
