NJ Trial of “Melrose Place” Actress On Hold

The aggravated manslaughter trial of a “Melrose Place” actress accused of killing a New Jersey woman in a 2010 motor vehicle accident has been temporarily halted.

The judge hearing the case agreed Monday to suspend the trial for a week because Blair Zwillman, the lead attorney for Amy Locane-Bovenizer, said he has to leave the case due to personal health issues. He will be replaced by Ellen Torregrossa-O’Connor, and the trial suspension will give her more time to prepare.

Prosecutors allege the 40-year-old actress, who lives in Hopewell, was drunk and speeding when her SUV struck a vehicle that was pulling into a driveway. She faces 10 to 30 years in prison if convicted.

Locane-Bovenizer appeared on 13 episodes of “Melrose Place” in the role of Sandy Louise Harling.
