Former “Melrose Place” Actress Convicted In Deadly Crash

SOMERVILLE, N.J. (November 27, 2012)--Jurors in New Jersey Tuesday convicted former "Melrose Place" actress Amy Locane-Bovenizer of vehicular homicide in a deadly crash, but acquitted her of a more serious charge, aggravated manslaughter, in the 2010 accident that killed a 60-year-old woman.

Somerset County prosecutors said Locane-Bovenizer's blood-alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit when the crash occurred on a dark two-lane road in Montgomery Township.

The defense conceded she was driving under the influence, but her lawyer claimed a woman was chasing her after an earlier accident, forcing her to speed.

The actress appeared in 13 episodes of TV's "Melrose Place" and in movies including "Cry-Baby," ''School Ties" and "Secretary."
