Deliberations resume in Senser hit-and-run case 03 May 12

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Jurors have begun a third day of deliberations in the fatal hit-and-run trial of Amy Senser, the wife of ex-Minnesota Viking Joe Senser.

The jury went back to work Thursday morning after recessing around 7 p.m. Wednesday following nearly 13 hours of deliberations that began Tuesday. They were sequestered for a second night. Jurors asked no questions of the judge Wednesday.

Amy Senser is charged with three felony counts of criminal vehicular homicide and one misdemeanor count of careless driving in the Aug. 23 death of Thai restaurant chef Anousone Phanthavong.

Prosecutors say she must have known she struck the Roseville man as he stood beside his stalled car on a Minneapolis freeway ramp. Senser says she had no idea she hit him until much later.
