WICHITA, Kan. — Three men have been bound over for trial, accused of stealing a wedding ring and other items from a dying woman at a fast-food restaurant drive-thru last year.
The three suspects, Daquantrius Johnson, Quanique Thomas-Hameen and Keith Hickels Jr., are 19 years old and charged with robbery, theft and aggravated burglary.
Danielle Zimmerman was pulling into a Taco Bell drive thru on Dec. 29 when she suffered a brain aneurysm. While she was unconscious, someone took her purse, a cellphone and wedding ring. The 43-year-old Wichita woman died the following day.
"It's a tragic situation, irrespective of the crime that took place, that a woman as young as she was dying under the circumstances. So, I know the family would love to have the ring back," said Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett.
All three were bound over for trial, which is scheduled for April 7.
