    An actress who appeared on the "Melrose Place'' television show has been indicted on charges stemming from a deadly car crash in New Jersey.

    The Courier News of Bridgewater reports that the indictment charges 39-year-old Amy Locane-Bovenizer of Hopewell with aggravated manslaughter and assault by auto. It was handed up Thursday in Somerset County.

    Authorities say Locane-Bovenizer's Chevrolet Tahoe hit a Mercury Milan driven by Fred Seeman of Montgomery as he was turning into his driveway on June 27. Seeman's wife, Helene, was killed.

    Police say officers arrested Locane-Bovenizer after detecting alcohol on her breath.

    She has been free on $50,00 bail. Her lawyer, Blair Zwillman, did not return an after-hours message seeking comment.
