Wichita man, 20, convicted of stealing dying woman's wedding ring at Taco Bell drive-thru


WICHITA, Kansas — A jury has convicted one of the men accused of stealing a wedding ring and other items from a dying woman after she suffered a brain aneurysm at a Taco Bell drive-thru.

The Kansas City Star ( reports the Sedgwick County jury on Thursday convicted 20-year-old Wichita resident Daquantrius S. Johnson of aggravated burglary, robbery and misdemeanor theft. The panel had deliberated about three hours.

Johnson could face a maximum prison term of more than 15 years at sentencing on Jan. 29.

Forty-three-year-old Danielle Zimmerman died on Dec. 30, 2013, one day after suffering the fatal brain injury. She was unconscious and her pickup hit the drive-thru speaker box.

Another defendant was sentenced to 19 months in prison after pleading guilty to misdemeanor theft. A third still faces trial.
