Jury reaches verdict in Senser hit-and-run case

A jury has reached a verdict in its third day of deliberations in the fatal hit-and-run trial of Amy Senser, the wife of ex-Minnesota Viking Joe Senser.

The jury's decision was to be read Thursday afternoon.

Jurors have been sequestered since deliberations began. 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 (ah-NOO'-sahn PAN'-tah-wong).

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.
