SOMERVILLE, N.J. (AP) - Jurors in New Jersey have convicted a former “Melrose Place” actress of vehicular homicide.

The Star-Ledger of Newark ( https://bit.ly/QnNGH3) reports the panel on Tuesday also acquitted Amy Locane-Bovenizer 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 defense conceded she was driving under the influence. But her lawyer claimed a woman was chasing her after an earlier accident, forcing her to speed.

The actress appeared in 13 episodes of TV’s “Melrose Place” and in movies including “Cry-Baby,” “School Ties” and “Secretary.”
