CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A driver will serve a total of 12 more days in jail after hitting and killing a mother and daughter with his SUV while they were walking on East Miami River Road last year.

Judge Dwane Mallory sentenced 24-year-old Theodore Rumpke to 180 days, but the judge suspended 153, and ordered Rumpke to serve 12 more. He had already served 15 days after missing a pre-sentencing investigation.

Rumpke pleaded no contest in August to two counts of misdemeanor vehicular homicide.

On Monday, Rumpke made a tear-filled, dramatic apology in court Monday for what happened to Jessica Lutz, 29, and Patricia Lutz, 65. 

Rumpke told authorities he was not looking at the road because he was arguing with his girlfriend when his Jeep Wrangler hit Jessica and Patricia as they walked on East Miami River Road near Colerain 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!"

Rumpke was also given two years of probation Monday and will have his drivers license suspended for five years.
