Amy Senser Appeals to Minn. Supreme Court

Updated: 07/25/2013 7:34 AM By: Leslie Dyste

The wife of a former Minnesota Viking is appealing her conviction in a fatal hit-and-run accident to the state Supreme Court.
The attorney for Amy Senser asked the high court Tuesday to review the case.
The appeals court ruled in June that there was sufficient evidence that Senser knew she had hit and injured 38-year-old Anousone Phanthavong.
Phanthavong was hit while refilling the gas tank of his stalled car on a freeway exit ramp in Minneapolis.

Senser, wife of former Viking Joe Senser, claimed she thought she had hit a pothole or construction barrier.
Hennepin County prosecutors have until Aug. 13 to respond.
Unlike the State Court of Appeals, the Supreme Court can choose which cases to accept. Their decision is expected later this summer or early fall.
