MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The wife of former Minnesota Viking Joe Senser has made her first court appearance in a fatal hit-and-run crash in Minneapolis.
Amy Senser's appearance lasted less than a minute Friday in Hennepin County District Court. The judge asked her if she had read the charge, and she said she had.
The judge set a pretrial hearing for Oct. 18.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports (http://bit.ly/pgmHTD ) Amy Senser and her attorney declined comment as they entered and left the courtroom.
Amy Senser was charged Thursday with criminal vehicular homicide operation, a felony. Prosecutors allege she hit 38-year-old Anousone Phanthavong (ah-NOO'-sahn PAN'-tah-wong) of Roseville on a freeway ramp last month as he was putting gas into his car.
