Former Melrose Place star Amy Locane-Bovenizer was convicted of vehicular homicide on Tuesday and later jailed when her bail was revoked, The Associated Press reports.
According to the AP, the actress, 40, did not testify at the trial and could face five to ten years in prison.
The conviction stems from a 2010 DWI arrest, where Locane-Bovenizer allegedly had a blood-alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit when she collided with another vehicle in New Jersey. The accident resulted in the death of 60-year-old Helene Seeman, the AP reports.
Sentencing was reportedly scheduled for March 1.
"This is a sad day for the Seeman Family. There were no winners declared by the verdict. There are only losers," Assistant Prosecutor Matthew Murphy said. "A husband lost his dear wife; his two children lost their mother; and Helene's mother lost her daughter. That loss can never be rectified by a verdict."
