WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE-WIBW) Three suspects accused of robbing a dying woman at a Wichita drive-thru last week have been formally charged.

Quanique Dontrell Thomas-Hameen, Daquantrius Shaquill Johnson and Keith Byron Hickels Jr., all 19 years old, made their first appearance this afternoon in Sedgwick County district court.

All three were charged with one count or robbery, and bond was set at $200,000 for each.

They're expected to be back in court for a preliminary hearing later this month.

Children sledding later found her discarded purse near I-135 and Mount Vernon, but several credit cards, cash, phone and wedding ring were still missing.

Monday morning, police announced that they arrested two 19-year-old men in connection to the theft. Acting on a Crime Stoppers tip, the men were arrested Friday night in the 1600 block of South Broadway.

Quanique Dontrell Thomas-Hameen was booked for robbery, failure to appear and driving while suspended. Daquantrius Shaquill Johnson was booked for robbery, possession of a firearm and probation violation.
