WICHITA, Kan. — Additional charges have been filed against three men in the theft of a wedding ring from dying woman at a Wichita drive-thru.

On December 29, 43-year-old Danielle Zimmerman suffered a brain aneurysm as she pulled into the parking lot of Taco Bell in the 3700 block of East Harry. She crashed into the drive-thru speaker box and as she lay unconscious in her SUV, her purse, iPhone and wedding ring were stolen. She died at a local hospital the next day.

Police later arrested three men for the crime and several items were recovered, but not the wedding ring.

Earlier this month, Quanique Dontrell Thomas-Hameen, Daquantrius Shaquill Johnson and Keith Byron Hickels, Jr., all 19 years old, were charged with one count of robbery.

Yesterday, all three were charged with additional crimes including theft and aggravated burglary. Bond is set at $200,000 for each and they're scheduled to be in court for a preliminary hearing on February 13.

The reward for the return of the missing ring has climbed to more than $4,200. The public can contribute to the fund. For more information,
