Pendleton Heights homes to be featured in two urban Kansas City magazines

Looks like the Pendleton Heights Neighborhood will be featured prominently in two upcoming and unrelated magazine articles.

The folks over at the downtown-focused The Urban Times will be featuring a historic residence in the environs of Pendleton Heights. Another magazine, Kansas City Scene will showcase another Historic Pendleton Heights home.

No word on when the articles will break, but with spring coming — so this li'l pooch is told — it'll be a nice addition to the already burgeoning renaissance in the Historic Northeast neighborhoods.

Keep an eye on our Web site as we'll have all the details as they become available.

BREAKING NEWS: Charges filed in Gladstone Blvd. shooting

Jackson County Prosecutors today charged Syreta Tosan of murder in the first degree for her involvement in an early morning shooting here.

Prosecutors say Tosan deliberately murdered John Barbieri.

Court documents say she told Kansas City Police she shot her boyfriend after he forced her to smoke crack and sexually assaulted her. She pulled a gun from her bag and shot him several times. Tosan then ran to a nearby residence and called the police.

Police responded to the residence where they found the victim dead from an apparent gunshot wound. After an investigation was conducted, a gun was found under a pillow by the victim and two crack pipes were found on the floor at the foot of the bed.
