GREEN BAY (WLUK) – David Meyer was convicted Tuesday in connection with the drunken driving crash which killed a mother and daughter who were walking along a Lawrence road.

Rebecca Pennenberg, 44, and her daughter Raelia, 18, were walking on French Road in Lawrence last Aug. 17, when they were hit and killed.

Meyer pleaded no contest to two counts of homicide by use of a vehicle while having a prohibited alcohol concentration. Two other counts of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle were dismissed but can be considered at sentencing. Sentencing is set for September 11. The maximum sentence would total 50 years in prison.

Meyer told police he was headed home from a golf outing. According to court documents, Meyer's preliminary breath test was .219 percent, which is more than two and a half times the legal limit of .08 percent.
