A Chicago woman is accused of stealing her mother's $40,000 engagement ring in a bizarre robbery.

Julie Franck, 36, was arrested on Friday and appeared in court Sunday.

Prosecutors say Franck wore a ski mask during the robbery on October 9, so her mother wouldn't recognize her, but a witness pulled the ski mask off.

Police say a second suspect then shot the robbery victim 15 times with a stun gun.

A judge set bond at $300,000.
