CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The driver charged with hitting and killing a mother and her daughter walking on East Miami River Road last year is now out of jail.

Theodore A. Rumpke, 23, was behind bars after failing to show up to a presentence investigation report last month.  

Judge Dwayne Mallory reissued Rumpke’s bond, meaning he’ll be on electronic home detention until his Oct. 26 sentencing.

Mallory heard testimony in September from people who came from all across the country, including the family of Jessica and Patricia Lutz.

"Your social media posts weeks after the accident caused me great pain and distress," said Jenna Schrenk, the daughter and sister of Patricia and Jessica. "I don't think you understand the pain and devastation your behavior has caused my family."

Rumpke allegedly put multiple posts on Facebook after the incident that upset the Lutz family, according to the family's attorney Jean McCoy.

"For all you stupid f**** that think you have been living a s***** hard stressful life. Come and wear my shoes for a week and the will want yours back. Because I know damn well what a hard life is like to live. So be thankful for who and what you a have," Rumpke posted on Facebook about a week after the death of Jessica and Patricia. 

He also posted a picture of the Jeep that killed the two victims two weeks after the crash. 

McCoy told the court on Wednesday that Rumpke's failure to show up to his presentence investigation report is not surprising. 

"It's completely consistent with his lack of remorse which he has callously splashed across Facebook for all the world, including to the lutzes to see," McCoy said.    

Rumpke recently pleaded no contest to two counts of vehicular homicide. Each charge carries a maximum of one year in prison, five years of probation and a fine.  

He told authorities he was not looking at the road because he was arguing with his girlfriend when his Jeep Wrangler hit Jessica Lutz, 29, and Patricia Lutz 65, as they walked on East Miami River Road near Colerian Ave. on Oct. 12.

They were pronounced dead at the scene.

The mother and daughter often walked together while praying, according to family members. Before leaving the house on Oct. 12, Patricia left her husband Vince a note that read "I'm just walking the street - Join me!"

The Lutz family is aware a plea deal was worked out in the case.

Rumpke was released last year on $40,000 bond and put on house arrest prior to not showing up at the sentencing.
