Former 'Melrose' Star Indicted In Fatal Car Crash

12/16/2010 6:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Former "Melrose Place" star Amy Locane-Bovenizer has been indicted in New Jersey on charges of aggravated manslaughter and assault by auto following her deadly crash earlier this year ... TMZ has learned.

Amy Locane Indicted
Sources tell TMZ Locane was indicted this afternoon by a grand jury in Somerset County.

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."

Here's another Celebrity Justice moment. The accident occurred in June and it took them almost 7 months to indict. Thank GOD there is a family on the other side-that I suspect-are not going to allow this situation to sweep under the rug or minimized.

Too bad it wasn't her attorney that she killed. He's an *******. I agree with this person:

drinking, and then driving and killing someone should get you charged with pre-meditated murder

drinking before driving is the same as loading bullets into the gun before pulling the trigger

Ok. She said sorry. Let her drive around the street again. Oh, Charles Manson also said sorry.

Wow - if it was Charlie Sheen everyone would be calling the victim a money grubbing whore and saying how special he was. The justice system has different rules for different folks.

Naw.... no deal this time - she's going to have to do a few years in lockup. Special "celeb" treatment is reserved for only the truly elite and important, irreplaceable stars.... like Lindsay Lohan.

I mean, c'mon - how can anyone dream that Amy Cocaine is even remotely on the same orbit as Lindsay? Lindsay's perfect in every way... especially if one of those ways is looking like your face was shotgunned by a shell or two full of cherry Pop Rocks. Luckily, she can hide that by dusting her mug with that unidentified white powder.

This Amy broad has nothing coming... off with her head.

Geez haters, give it a rest already. Her lawyer is doing what lawyers are paid to do. You 'rons ever found yourself in trouble you'd want your lawyer to do the most he can as much as possible.

I feel terrible for the family that lost their daughter, and badly for Amy.

All for a few drinks.

If you look at the accident report it seems like it was the other drivers fault. They pulled in front of her to get in her driveway, she may have been speeding but they cut her off, I don't think it's her fault at all.
