KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A Kansas City man who admitted sending a fake anthrax threat to one of his former neighbors through the mail was sentenced Friday to probation and home detention.

Robert R. Nye, 38, pleaded guilty Jan. 23 to one felony count of threatening communication through the mail. Nye apparently was not aware that the former neighbor, Emma Shearman, had died.
