‘Shield’ actor waives hearing in wife’s death

  LOS ANGELES – Actor Michael Jace, who has been charged with killing his wife, has waived his right to a preliminary hearing.

 The decision Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court means the case will proceed to trial without an initial presentation of evidence to a judge.

 The actor’s attorney, Jason Sias, said outside court that the case is still under investigation and the defense will be presented at trial.

 Jace is accused of shooting his wife, April Jace, in their Los Angeles home on May 19. He pleaded not guilty during his June arraignment.

 Jace played a police officer on “The Shield” TV series, appeared in the show “Southland” and had small roles in such movies as “Boogie Nights” and “Forrest Gump.”
