Michael Jace
has just been charged with murder after cops say he shot and killed his wife Monday night.

51-year-old Jace -- who starred in "The Shield" -- now faces 50 years to life in state prison if convicted.

As we reported, Jace himself called 911 after the shooting inside his L.A. home, telling police he was the one who pulled the trigger. Jace's wife April was already dead by the time police arrived.

Jace's two young sons were at home at the time of the alleged murder. According to police, the boys are now living with relatives.

Jace is currently being held on $2 million bail. He's scheduled to appear in court Thursday.

Put him to death. Not only did he murder his wife, he also killed his children's mother and changed the course of their lives forever.

That is one scary looking dude. He has a reputation for abusing white women and has hate in his heart. This man is locked up where he belongs.

People stop looking the conclutions....murder ! He killed his wife horrible but you need to see what factors bring this human to do it !?? Until we don't work with that factors. This situation going to be over and over with different character today was Michael and Yesterday was O .J ! If we don't look the triggers and learn how work with.....we will stay in the same circle of abuse for both sides.
