Driver sentenced for fatal crash that killed two teens
CINCINNATI (Adam Clements) -- An emotional day in court as a man learns his punishment Tuesday for his role in a crash that killed two people.
18-year-old Kyle Stein will spend the next four years in prison, after pleading guilty to two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide. He'll also never be able to drive a car again.
There was emotional testimony in Judge Steve Martin's courtroom.
Stein apologized to the families of both Eric Moormann and Rachel McGrath, saying not a day goes by that he doesn't regret his actions.
Stein admitted to being drunk and high on marijuana when he was driving the speeding car that crashed into a other parked vehicle just off Sheed Road in Colerain Township last September. Both Moormann and McGrath were killed.
The fathers of both victims spoke at the sentencing, directly addressing Stein. Neither forgive the nineteen-year-old for changing their lives forever.
Both the mother and grandfather of Rachel McGrath also spoke in court today and asked Judge Steve Martin for leniency in his sentence.
They say despite the pain they've suffered, they have been able to forgive Kyle Stein.
