LOS ANGELES (AP) — The 10-year-old son of an actor on trial for murder in the killing of his wife says he heard his father tell his mother that she should run to heaven before shooting her twice.

Nehemiah Jace testified Wednesday that he saw his father Michael Jace pull his mother into a hallway of their home where she fell down.

The boy says he heard his father utter the phrase about heaven and then two gunshots.

Nehemiah Jace shared a bedroom with his younger brother within sight of the spot where his mother April Jace was killed two years ago.

April Jace was an avid runner and the prosecutor says her husband shot her in the legs so she would feel pain.

Michael Jace played a police officer in the FX series "The Shield."
