Ms. Kelly portrayed Laurie Forman, sister of Topher Grace’s lead character Eric, on the Fox series.

Unlike some of her co-stars, such as Grace, Ashton Kutcher and Laura Prepon, Ms. Kelly fell out of the spotlight after appearing on the sitcom until she started making headlines for personal troubles.

She was arrested in November along with husband, Robert Joseph Gilliam, in connection with a disturbance at their home in Mooresville, N.C.

In June, she was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after her car stalled in Burbank, Calif.
