WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – Prosecutors have filed new charges against three Wichita men accused of stealing the wedding ring off a dying woman’s hand at a fast-food restaurant drive-thru.
Daquantrius Johnson, Quanique Thomas-Hameen and Keith Hickles Jr. initially were charged with robbery after the Dec. 29 incident at a Wichita Taco Bell. The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1eiO8Ry ) reports prosecutors on Wednesday added theft and aggravated burglary charges against the 19-year-olds.
Theft is a misdemeanor, while robbery and aggravated burglary are felonies.
Police say 43-year-old Danielle Zimmerman had driven to get dinner for family when she suffered a brain aneurysm and crashed her pickup truck into the speaker box of the drive-thru lane. Thieves stole her ring and her purse while she lay unconscious.
She died the next day. The ring still hasn’t been found.
