    A former "Melrose Place" actress convicted in a fatal auto crash must return to court for a second re-sentencing.

    A New Jersey appeals court in 2016 ordered the first re-sentencing after prosecutors contended Amy Locane's three-year sentence for the 2010 crash was too lenient.

    In January 2017, the judge re-imposed the same sentence. On Friday, an appeals court ruled the judge didn't follow its earlier ruling and didn't take the crime's severity into account.

    A different judge will conduct the re-sentencing.
