Amy Locane indicted for aggravated manslaughter

Amy Locane was involved in a deadly car accident earlier this year, after drinking a few glasses of wine and getting behind the wheel. Now we’ve learned that the actress has been indicted on aggravated manslaughter and assault by auto charges this afternoon.

TMZ reports:

As we previously reported, Locane smashed into the side of another car in Montgomery, NJ back in June … killing the woman in the front seat. Locane told cops she had several glasses of wine before getting behind the wheel.

Locane faces 10-30 years behind bars for the manslaughter charge — and 5-10 years for the assault by auto charge.

Locane’s attorney Blair Zwillman tells TMZ he’s “surprised” at the aggravated manslaughter charge, adding, “I don’t believe it is supported by the law or the facts and I think it constitutes over-reaching by the prosecutor’s office.”

‘Melrose’ Star Amy Locane Charged in Deadly Crash

‘Melrose Place’ actress Amy Locane-Bovenizer has been charged with vehicular homicide following a wine-fueled crash Sunday night in Montgomery, New Jersey, that left one woman dead and a man in critical condition.

Locane-Bovenizer was involved in a hit-and-run collision near Princeton with an unrelated car at around 9 PM Sunday. While attempting to leave the scene of that accident, she slammed her 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe into the passenger side of another vehicle, killing Helene Seeman, the Star-Ledger reports. The driver of the car, Fred Seeman, was flown to a nearby hospital where he was listed in critical condition as of Monday afternoon.

In Princeton, just miles away from the fatal crash in Montgomery, the 38-year-old actress rear-ended a different vehicle, Somerset County Acting Prosecutor A. Peter DeMarco, Jr. said in a statement. Locane-Bovenizer fled the scene when the driver of that car attempted to call for help, so he followed her, telling police that the actress was “swerving and knocking down several mailboxes.”

Following the Princeton collision, Locane-Bovenizer drove the 17 miles to Montgomery, where she struck the Seeman’s car. Officers on the scene said she had alcohol on her breath and her eyes were bloodshot. She was arrested and taken to a nearby medical center to have her blood-alcohol level tested.

Locane-Bovenizer has been charged with second-degree vehicular homicide and third-degree assault by automobile. At her arraignment on Monday afternoon, Superior Court Judge Robert Reed set her bail at $50,000.

She faces 5-10 years in state prison if convicted, and in accordance with state law, she would be required to serve 85 percent of the term without parole.

While in custody, the actress admitted to having several glasses of wine that day. Locane-Bovenizer, who currently resides near the scene of the accidents in central New Jersey, may have been leaving the Off-Broadstreet Theatre in Hopewell, where a play in which she stars had a matinee showing on Sunday.

Locane-Bovenizer starred opposite Johnny Depp in the 1990 film ‘Cry-Baby’ and had a prominent role in the star-studded 1994 film ‘Airheads’ with Adam Sandler and Chris Farely. Other acting credits include ‘School Ties’ with Brendan Fraser and the 2002 indie film ‘Secretary,’ starring Maggie Gyllenhaal. She is best known for her run as aerobics instructor Sandy Louise Harling on the hit series ‘Melrose Place.’

The actress married Mark Bovenizer in 2008 and the couple has two daughters, ages 3 and 1.
