ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Amy Senser's conviction in a fatal hit-and-run accident has been upheld by the Minnesota Court of Appeals, which rejected her bid to overturn the verdict on multiple grounds.

A three-judge panel ruled Monday that there was sufficient evidence to convict the wife of former Minnesota Viking Joe Senser.
Senser is serving a 41-month prison sentence in the death of Anousone Phanthavong. He was struck on a Minneapolis freeway exit ramp. Senser maintains she didn't know she had struck a person.

The appeals court says a district judge was wrong to admit hearsay evidence in the case and didn't tell attorneys of a note from the jury. But Monday's ruling says neither had a critical effect on the verdict and that Senser had a fair trial.
