The Minnesota Supreme Court has denied Amy Senser's last bid for a new trial.
The court order signed by Chief Justice Lorie Gildea and released Tuesday offers no explanation for the denial. Senser, wife of restaurateur and former Minnesota Vikings player Joe Senser, is serving a three and a half year prison sentence after her conviction in the hit and run death of a 38-year-old Roseville man in 2011.
Anousone Phanthavong was putting gas in his stalled car at night on a darkened freeway exit ramp when Senser hit him and kept going. Senser claimed she thought she hit a construction cone. After she was convicted, Senser tearfully apologized to the Phanthavong family.
Senser is scheduled to be released from the women's prison in Shakopee next October.
