WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A 20-year-old Kansas man has been sentenced to nearly eight years in prison for stealing the wedding ring from the hand of a dying woman last year in the drive-thru of a fast-food restaurant.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/1JPp2Ja ) reports Sedgwick County District Judge Christopher Magana sentenced Keith Byron Hickles Jr. on Monday to 94 months. He was one of three men convicted of stealing items from 43-year-old Danielle Zimmerman after she suffered a brain aneurysm on Dec. 29 in the drive-thru of a Wichita Taco Bell.

Zimmerman, who had gone to the restaurant to get dinner for herself, her husband and two teenage sons, crashed her truck into the speaker box. She died the next day.

Police recovered her purse Dec. 30, but the ring remains missing.
