Amy Senser is expected to leave prison this week and be transferred to a work release facility, WCCO reports.
She is expected to leave the women's prison in Shakopee and be moved to a jail or a halfway house, the station says.
The wife of former Vikings great Joe Senser was convicted in the hit-and-run death of 38-year-old Anousaone Phanthavong in 2011. Phanthavong was struck and killed as he was refilling his gas tank on an I-94 ramp near Riverside Avenue.
Amy Senser was sentenced in July 2012 to a 41-month prison term on two felony counts of criminal vehicular homicide.
Senser is expected to remain at the work release facility until October, and then will go on supervised release until December 2015 to fulfill her 41-month sentence, WCCO says.
