MINNEAPOLIS – Amy Senser is getting sprung early.

The woman sentenced to 41 months for the 2011 hit-and-run death of Thai chef Anousone “Bic” Phanthavong had been scheduled to be let out on supervised release Oct. 20, but she has shaved six months off that and is now scheduled for release April 24.


Sarah Latuseck, a spokeswoman for the Minnesota Department of Corrections, said Senser had applied for work release and was approved.
