Actor Michael Jace has pleaded not guilty to a charge of murder in the shooting death of his wife.
"The Shield" star waived his right to a preliminary hearing earlier this month after his attorneys accepted there was enough evidence to go to trial.
In court on Friday, he pleaded not guilty to charges he shot April Jace, 40, dead during an altercation at the couple's Hyde Park, Los Angeles home in May.
Police have not disclosed a motive for the slaying but have said they were looking into whether financial or other domestic issues may have been involved.
Police say Michael Jace called 911 to report the killing. Audio of Jace's call has not been made public, but fire officials have released a 911 call from April Jace'sfather in which he says the actor told him he had shot the victim.
"My son-in-law called me, and (texted) me, and said come get the kids because he shot April, our daughter," the caller, whose name was redacted from the audio, told a fire department dispatcher.
