Man Who Took Ring From Dying Wichita Woman Gets 11 Years

A Wichita man has been sentenced to prison for stealing a wedding ring from a woman who was dying in her car at a drive-through restaurant.

Twenty-one-year-old Daquantrius Johnson was sentenced yesterday to 11 years and four months for the theft in at a Taco Bell in 2013.

Prosecutors say he and two other men took the wedding ring, a purse and other items from Danielle Zimmerman as she lay unconscious while having a brain aneurism in the drive-thru lane. Zimmerman died the next day.

Johnson will serve the sentence consecutively to sentences for other crimes, for a total sentence of about 20 1/2 years.

Despite public pleas and possible rewards, Zimmerman's ring was never found
