WICHITA, Kansas — A Wichita man was 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 Monday to 11 years and four months for the theft in December 2013 at a Taco Bell restaurant. Prosecutors say he and two other men took the wedding ring, a purse and other items from Danielle Zimmerman as she was unconscious from a brain aneurism. She died the next day.

Johnson will serve the sentence consecutively to sentences for other crimes, for a total sentence of about 20½ years.

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