WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — One of three men suspected of stealing a wedding ring from a dying woman at a Wichita restaurant will be sentenced in October.
Twenty-year-old Quanique Thomas-Hameen was scheduled to be sentenced Thursday for one count of obstructing prosecution and one count of misdemeanor theft. The Wichita Eagle reports court records show the sentencing was rescheduled for Oct. 9.
Thomas-Hameen reached a plea agreement in the case in July. His two co-defendants are facing trial on stronger charges.
The men are accused of removing the ring and other belongings from 43-year-old Danielle Zimmerman as she was dying from a brain aneurysm in the Taco Bell drive-through in December. The theft sparked outrage in Wichita and a reward was offered but the ring has not been recovered.
