LOS ANGELES, Calif. - A judge has delayed the arraignment of actor Michael Jace on a murder charge filed over his wife's shooting death earlier this week.

Attorneys for Jace, who played a police officer in the hit TV series "The Shield," sought a continuance during the actor's first court appearance in Los Angeles on Thursday.

He's due back in court June 18.

The 51-year-old was charged Thursday with a single count of murder and he is accused of shooting his wife April multiple times in their home Monday evening.

The couple's two young sons were at home at the time of the shooting and were unharmed. Authorities say the boys are now living with relatives.

If convicted, Jace faces 50 years to life in prison.
