‘Melrose Place’ Actress Convicted of Vehicular Homicide
Former Melrose Place actress Amy Locane-Bovenizer was found guilty Tuesday of vehicular homicide and assault by auto after she slammed her SUV into another car in 2010, killing a passenger and severely injuring the driver. At the time of the incident, Locane-Bovenizer had a blood-alcohol content that was almost three times the legal limit. The defense conceded that the actress was drunk, but claimed another motorist who was pursuing Locane-Bovenizer—after being rear-ended by her—was criminally responsible. Locane-Bovenizer faces 15 years in prison. She will be sentenced March 1.
