Amy Locane Dec 17 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Actress Amy Locane-Bovenizer, who is best known for her part in ‘Melrose Place’ was indicted on charges of aggravated manslaughter and assault by auto, because of the fatal car wreck which she was involved in back in June. One woman was killed in the crash, and a man was injured.

Amy admitted to police that she had been drinking “several glasses of wine,” and was involved in another hot and run accident just minutes before the fatal wreck in Montgomery, New Jersey over the summer. The driver in the first wreck began to try to call for help, and Amy took off in her vehicle. While fleeing the scene of that accident, the actress slammed her car, a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe, into the side of Helene Seeman’s car, killing Helene and and injuring her male passenger.

The grand Jury in Somerset County indicted Amy on Thursday. She could face between 10 and 30 years on the manslaughter charges and another 5 to 10 years for the assault by vehicle charge.
