MINNEAPOLIS — An attorney for Amy Senser, the wife of former Minnesota Viking Joe Senser, said his client is “deep remorseful” for a hit-and-run accident that killed a man last year and that he will seek probation at her sentencing next week.

Attorney Eric Nelson requested leniency for Senser, saying in court documents: “She struggles every day with the fact that she is responsible, albeit accidentally, for the taking of a human life.”

Senser faces a maximum of four years in prison when sentenced Monday on two counts of criminal vehicular homicide for the August crash that killed Anousone Phanthavong, 38.
