Judge throws out Amy Senser's defense motions

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS -

A judge has denied a defense request to throw out Amy Senser's felony convictions in a fatal Minneapolis hit-and-run.

Hennepin County District Judge Daniel Mabley on Thursday denied all of the defense motions raised by Senser's attorney.

Senser was convicted May 3 in the hit-and-run death of 38-year-old Anousone Phanthavong. Sentencing is expected to continue as scheduled on July 9.

Days after Senser's conviction, attorneys learned of a note the jury sent to the judge, which said jurors believed Senser hit a vehicle, not a person.

The Star Tribune reports the judge on Thursday called the note "a complete non-issue" because it was given to him after the verdicts were reached and signed.

Senser is the wife of former Minnesota Vikings player Joe Senser.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
