MILWAUKEE COUNTY -- The man who hit and killed a mother and her son on Milwaukee's south side last year will find out how long he'll spend behind bars.

In November 2011, Frances Pizarro and her son were hit while crossing the street at 14th and Greenfield.

The man behind the wheel, Martin Rodriguez, took off.

Police eventually caught up with Rodriguez, who had prior OWI convictions.

According to court records, Rodriguez admitted to police he drank five 40 ounce beers before the accident.
