For Immediate Release

Nov. 20, 2018

A 19-year-old Kansas Citian has been charged in the fatal shooting in April 2018 of a 26-year-old woman inside her residence on Paseo in Kansas City, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Kenneth G. Flowers, dob: 6/30/1999, faces Unlawful Use of a Weapon, a Class A Felony; Murder 2nd Degree because the victim died during the perpetration of the felony of Unlawful Use of a Weapon, and two counts of Armed Criminal Action.*

According to court records, police responded late in the evening on April 13, 2018 to a residence in the 6900 block of Paseo in Kansas City. Later they discovered the victim, Kindrea Brown, deceased from apparent gunshot wounds. Bullet holes were found in her bedroom and shell casings were found outside the house. Four other family members were inside at the time of the shooting. All reported hearing gunshots around 11:30 p.m. Two types of shell casings were found at the scene. DNA tests of shell casings identified the DNA of the defendant. Facebook messages showed Flowers called a relative of the victim a "rat."  That relative and his twin brother lived in the home with the homicide victim. Later, a jail call recorded before the homicide had the defendant telling another party that "The twins are rats." Later, police found a .40 caliber handgun was found beneath Flowers' car seat. The gun was tested and found to be one of the guns used at the homicide scene. It was deterimed it was the gun that expelled the shell casings on which DNA from Flowers was found. Cell phone records placed the defendant near the crime scene at two minutes after the homicide. Then it showed him moving to his home.

Prosecutors requested a bond of $250,000 cash.
