ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Supreme Court has denied the appeal of Amy Senser.
The state's high court denied Senser's petition asking for a review of her criminal vehicular homicide conviction in the August 2011 hit-and-run death of Anousone Phanthavong.
The court did not offer a reason for the denial.
Senser, the wife of a former Minnesota Viking, appealed the sentence. The appeals court ruled in July that there was sufficient evidence that Senser knew she had struck and injured Phanthavong.
Phanthavong was struck while refilling the gas tank of his stalled car on a freeway exit ramp in Minneapolis.
Senser claimed she thought she had hit a pothole or construction barrier.
