Ex-'Melrose Place' actress guilty in fatal crash
SOMERVILLE, N.J. (AP) -- Jurors in New Jersey have convicted a former "Melrose Place" actress of vehicular homicide.
RELATED: Trouble with the law
The Star-Ledger of Newark reports that the panel on Tuesday also acquitted Amy Locane-Bovenizer 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."
