ST. PAUL (AP) — The attorney of the wife of former Minnesota Vikings player Joe Senser says she was not intoxicated when she struck and killed a man last summer.

Amy Senser faces two counts of criminal vehicular homicide in the death of Anousone Phanthavong, who was struck on an Interstate 94 exit ramp Aug. 23.

In a legal memorandum filed Friday, defense attorney Eric John Nelson wrote Senser may have been speeding and talking on her cellphone, but there’s no evidence she was drunk.

The memo said earlier hints by prosecutors that she may have been drinking that night were “insulting prejudicial inferences” flung “for the sole purpose of inflaming and aggravating the potential jury pool.”
