(Detroit Free Press)- Ayanna Kilpatrick, sister of disgraced former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, could soon lose her Detroit home to foreclosure. 

A notice in the Detroit Legal News says Kilpatrick is in default on a nearly $219,000 mortgage owned by National City Mortgage Co. on the home in the 7400 block of La Salle Boulevard on the city's west side. It's the same home where Kwame Kilpatrick shoved a Wayne County Sheriff's detective who was serving a subpoena in 2008 on Bobby Ferguson, a mayoral friend, as the text-messaging scandal was engulfing the mayor.

Ayanna Kilpatrick also was listed as president of the Kilpatrick Civic Fund, a nonprofit group under scrutiny for questionable spending. The Free Press reported in April that more than $220,000 in funding the group reported remained unaccounted for.

Ayanna Kilpatrick's home will be sold at auction July 1 at Wayne County Circuit Court. She could not be reached immediately this morning for comment.

The 3,552-square foot house was built in 1916, according to the real estate website zillow.com. It's next door to the home of Congresswoman Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, the former mayor's mother.
