Jace, 51, had his arraignment postponed to June 18. His bail was set at $2 million per the prosecution's request.

The actor, who has appeared in numerous movies and television shows, is suspected of fatally shooting his wife, April Jace, at the couple's Hyde Park home on Monday. He called 911 shortly after 8:30 p.m.
