Deliberations to resume in Senser hit-and-run case

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Jurors are expected to resume deliberations in the vehicular homicide trial of Amy Senser, the wife of ex-Minnesota Viking Joe Senser.

The jury recessed around 7 p.m. Wednesday after nearly 13 hours of deliberations that began Tuesday and were sequestered for another night. Jurors asked no questions of the judge Wednesday. They were expected to resume deliberations about 9 a.m. Thursday.

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 Anousone Phanthavong (ah-NOO'-sahn PAN'-tah-wong).

Prosecutors say she had to 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.
