Melrose Place alum Amy Locane-Bovenizer on Tuesday was convicted of vehicular homicide stemming from a 2010 accident in which the actress drove with a blood-alcohol level that was nearly three times the legal limit.
Locane-Bovenizer, 40, was acquitted of a more serious charge of aggravated manslaughter after her SUV hit another car, killing a 60-year-old woman and injuring her husband as they were turning into their driveway in Montgomery Township, N.J.
The actress faces five to 10 years in prison – plus another three to five years in prison for a conviction on a second count of assault by auto due to the injuries she caused Fred Seeman, who was seriously injured. His wife, Helene Seeman, was killed in the June 2010 crash.

Melrose Place alum Amy Locane has been indicted for aggravated manslaughter and assault by automobile in a fatal accident in New Jersey.
The 38-year-old mom of two, who also appeared in Cry-Baby, School Ties, and Secretary, allegedly admitted to officers that she had several glasses of wine before getting into her 2007 Chevy Tahoe last June, according to authorities.
Locane's car collided with a 2007 Mercury Milan turning into a driveway in Montgomery, N.J., killing that car's passenger, Helene Seeman, and injuring her husband, police say.
