First make sure you are displaying hidden characters. One method to is to press Cmd + 8 another is to select the button on you toolbar that looks like a backwards P, and the third way is from Word > Preferences > View > Hidden Characters > All.

With the hidden characters shown, you might see what is causing the the extra space.

If nothing appears out of the ordinary then alternately select the paragraph before the extra space as well as the one after. When you select the paragraph then go to Format > Paragraph and check the settings for Spaces Before and Spaces After. If extra points have been added to the paragraph style you can reduce them to eliminate the extra space. While in the same dialog you can also check if multiple line spacing has been setup for the style.
