LOS ANGELES (AP) — The family of a woman whose actor husband has been charged with her killing said in a statement Thursday that she was an exceptional mother and their focus is on adequately providing for her three children.

April Jace‘s family thanks supporters for their prayers and donations and called her shooting death May 19 “a senseless act of domestic violence.” The statement was released to The Associated Press by her former employer, Biola University, where April Jace worked as a financial aid counselor.

“April was a vibrant, beautiful woman and an incredibly dedicated mother. We will all miss her contagious laughter, vivacious personality and her radiant smile,” the family wrote.

Jace’s husband Michael Jace, who played a police officer on the hit TV series The Shield, has been charged with murder. Police say he shot his wife to death during an argument but have not released details on his motive. The actor is due back in court for arraignment on June 18.

April Jace, 40 had two sons with the actor, ages 5 and 8, and an 18-year-old son from a previous marriage.

“Now, her youngest sons are left without a mother or a father to care for them,” the family’s statement wrote. “As the press dies down, these precious young boys will be left with ongoing reminders of their utterly tragic loss.”

    My heart, is heavy for the family of Mrs. Jace. Apparently, sleeping with the enemy. “Some”,men are very selfish and don’t understand what a divorce is. I am saddened for her children (especially, her 18 year old). He really need his mother, now (just as the younger children). May GOD’S mercy and grace cover them all.

    I don’t know why people stay with abusers. Apparently, it’s not healthy and never ends well. I live near Baltimore and just have to comment on the Ray Rice incident. His wife must have the fondest memories leading up to their wedding. Being cold-cocked in an elevator, him dragging and dropping her on the floor outside the elevator like a rag doll. Then he’s indicted for aggravated assault, and the very next day they get married. How romantic. I wonder why she would want to get married under those circumstances. SMH
