LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Actor Michael Jace, who played a conflicted cop in the cable television drama “The Shield,” pleaded not guilty in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday to a charge of murdering his wife, prosecutors said.

The actor, who has appeared mostly in supporting roles on TV in the past 20 years, has been held on $2 million bail.
