SOMERVILLE, N.J. — An actress who appeared on the original "Melrose Place" has pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from a fatal car crash in New Jersey last year.
Thirty-nine-year-old Amy Locane-Bovenizer of Hopewell faces charges of aggravated manslaughter and assault by auto.
Somerset County prosecutors say Locane-Bovenizer's SUV hit a car driven by Fred Seeman of Montgomery as he was turning into his driveway on June 27. Seeman's wife, Helene, was killed and he was seriously injured.
Police said officers arrested Locane-Bovenizer after detecting alcohol on her breath.
Her lawyer, Blair Zwillman, tells The Star-Ledger of Newark that his client is seeking to have the indictment dismissed.
She remains free on $50,000 bail.
Locane-Bovenizer played Sandy Louise Harling on the first season of "Melrose Place" in 1992.
