ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The attorney for the wife of former Minnesota Viking Joe Senser is preparing to argue that her criminal vehicular homicide conviction should be overturned.

Amy Senser will remain behind bars at the Shakopee women's prison when her case is heard before the Minnesota Court of Appeals Wednesday. Senser is serving more than three years for the death of Anousone Phanthavong. He was struck and killed on a freeway ramp in Minneapolis in August of 2011.

Attorney Eric Nelson will argue there was a lack of evidence that Senser knew she hit someone and left the scene that night.

Appellate attorney Lee Barry plans to argue that physical and circumstantial evidence is beyond sufficient to prove Senser knew she struck Phanthavong.
