WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas jury has convicted one of three 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 (http://bit.ly/1AokVwR ) 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 deliberated about three hours.

Johnson faces a maximum prison term of more than 15 years when he is sentenced Jan. 29.

Forty-three-year-old Danielle Zimmerman died Dec. 30, one day after 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.
