He was taken into custody and charged this morning with murder.

Insiders say the couple often argued over their finances, as Jace filed for bankruptcy in 2011 and was behind is currently behind on his mortgage payments.

Of sad note, meanwhile, is the revelation that April Jace actually testified as well in Michael’s 1997 divorce.
