Actress Fatal Accident
Mark Bovenizer, right, the husband of frormer "Melrose Place" actress Amy Locane-Bovenizer, 40, of Hopewell Township, looks toward the Superior Court Judge Robert Reed, as the jury returns a verdict on Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012 in Somerville, N.J. The jurors convicted Amy Locane-Bovenizer of vehicular homicide, 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 defence conceded she was driving under the influence. But her lawyer claimed a woman was chasing her after an earlier accident, forcing her to speed.
