MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Jurors have ended two days of deliberations without reaching a verdict in the fatal hit-and-run trial of Amy Senser, the wife of ex-Minnesota Viking Joe Senser.
 
The jury recessed around 7 p.m. Wednesday after nearly 13 hours of deliberations that began Tuesday. They asked no questions of the judge Wednesday. They'll be sequestered for a second night.
 
Amy Senser is charged with three felony counts of criminal vehicular homicide and one misdemeanor count of careless driving in the August 23rd death of Anousone Phanthavong.
 
Prosecutors say she had to have known she struck the Thai restaurant chef on a Minneapolis freeway ramp. Senser says she had no idea she hit him until much later. When she knew is one of the critical issues for the jury to decide.
