Minnesota Supreme Court won't hear Amy Senser's appeal

The Star Tribune reports the Minnesota Supreme Court will not consider Amy Senser's hit-and-run case.

The one-sentence order written by Chief Justice Lorie Gildea reads: “Based upon all the files, records, and proceedings herein, it is hereby ordered that the petition of Amy Margaret Senser for further review be, and the same is, denied.”

No specific explanation for the decision was given, the Pioneer Press reported.

In 2011, 47-year-old Senser, the wife of former Minnesota Vikings player and restauranteur Joe Senser, struck and killed 38-year-old Anousone Phanthavong on an exit ramp of I-94 while he was refilling the gas tank of his stalled car.

Senser was found guilty of criminal vehicular homicide and sentenced to four years at the state women's prison in Shakopee.

The state Court of Appeals upheld Senser’s conviction in June, a ruling that defense attorney Eric Nelson said was wrong for several reasons.

Nelson declined to comment on the Minnesota Supreme Court's decision.

Senser is set for supervised release in Oct. 2014.
