A Chicago man who was charged in the beating death of a nurse allegedly stole the woman’s wedding and engagement rings in order to propose to his girlfriend.

Raymond Harris, 36, was charged Thursday with first-degree murder and robbery in the death of Virginia Perillo, 73.

In court, prosecutors said Harris, who was paroled earlier this year after he served 13 years of a 30-year prison sentence on attempted murder and aggravated arson convictions, attended a party after attacking Perillo and was seen wearing “brand new clothes” and showing off new rings which he used later that night to propose to his girlfriend, according to the Chicago Tribune. Perillo’s family reportedly confirmed that rings being worn by Harris’ fiance belonged to the victim.
