Somerville, NJ (MyCentralJersey) -- A jury on Tuesday cleared former "Melrose Place" actress Amy Locane-Bovenizer of aggravated manslaughter, but convicted her on two lesser charges.

Locane-Bovenizer, 40, was taken into custody following the verdict, which found her guilty of death by auto and assault by auto.

Locane-Bovenizer faces five to 10 years in prison on the second-degree death by auto charge and three to five years on the third-degree assault by auto.

Sentencing is scheduled for March.

Locane-Bovenizer, best known for her role on the 1990s TV drama "Melrose Place," was charged in connection with a June 2010 car crash in Montgomery that killed Helene Seeman, 60, and seriously injured Seeman's husband, Fred.

Locane-Bovenizer would have faced up to 30 years in prison had she been convicted on the aggravated manslaughter charge.

The trial began early October.

The actress appeared in 13 episodes of TV's "Melrose Place" and in movies including "Cry-Baby," ''School Ties" and "Secretary."
