LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles police say they're investigating marital and financial difficulties as possible motives in the case of actor Michael Jace, who is accused of killing his wife.

Detective Dean Vinluan says Jace, who played a police officer on the hit TV show "The Shield," spoke to a 911 operator after apparently shooting his wife Monday night.

Vinluan says 40-year-old April Jace was shot multiple times in the couple's home. He says detectives are looking into what sparked a fight that led to the shooting.

Jace filed for bankruptcy in 2011.

Vinluan says the couple's children were at home when April Jace was killed. He says detectives are still trying to determine whether the children witnessed their parents fighting or the shooting.
