WICHITA, Kansas — 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 (http://bit.ly/Wfi3UR ) 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.
