US prosecutors have charged actor Michael Jace with murder after his wife was shot and killed in their Los Angeles home.
The 51-year-old actor, who played a police officer in the hit TV series The Shield, could face 50 years to life in state prison if convicted.
Police have said Jace shot April Jace multiple times on Monday. He was at the house when officers arrived.
He is being held in lieu of two million dollars (£1.2m) bail and is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday for the first time.
The couple's two young sons were at home at the time of the killing. Police have said they are now with relatives.
