Bob Bashara, the man accused of hiring a hit man to kill his wife last year in Gross Point, Mich., was arraigned on first degree murder charges today in court.

Jane Bashara was found strangled to death in her Mercedes SUV in Detroit in January 2012. Bob Bashara’s handyman, Joe Gentz, confessed to murdering Jane Bashara and said that Bob had hired him to do it.

Bob Bashara has previously pleaded guilty to trying to hire a hit man to kill Gentz and is serving a six-to-20 year sentence.

Now Bashara will face charges of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, solicitation to commit murder, witness intimidation and obstruction of justice, according to ABC News affiliate WXYZ. He faces life in prison.

During today’s hearing, Bashara told the judge that he was not currently represented by an attorney and was trying to raise money to hire one, WXYZ reported.

“May I ask for some more time? At this point I’m trying to raise funds for an attorney. At this point I do not have an attorney,” he said.

He is due back in court on May 7.

Before his wife’s murder, the pair lived at home with their two children and Bob Bashara owned local businesses.

A scheduling conference is to be held Tuesday in Detroit’s 36th District Court in the case against Bob Bashara, who has been charged in his wife’s death, according to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.

Bashara — facing multiple charges, including first-degree murder, in connection with Jane Bashara’s death in January 2012 — is not expected to appear in court, according to the prosecutor’s office.

Bashara also is charged with conspiracy to commit murder, solicitation to commit murder, suborning of perjury during a capital trial, witness intimidation and obstruction of justice.

Bashara is serving about 6 1/2 to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to solicitation to commit murder for trying to hire a hit man to kill his former handyman, Joseph Gentz, who told police he killed Jane Bashara at her husband's direction. Bashara admitted he tried to pay a local business owner to find someone to kill Gentz, who was sentenced to 17-28 years in prison in Jane Bashara‘s death

Jane Bashara was found strangled in her SUV, which had been dumped in an alley on Detroit's east side.

May is sweeps month when TV ratings help set advertising rates.

So what better way to tweak the ratings than to take a little tour of murder suspect Bob Bashara's much-talked about sex dungeon.

WDIV on Sunday night aired a segment with reporter Hank Winshester taking a tour of Bashara's dungeon in a Grosse Pointe Park building he owns.

WInshester notes that dungeon still has many of the fixtures: A bed, sword, rope, hooks and " adult toys we can't show you on TV."

A legal expert tells Winchester he expects prosecutors to bring up the dungeon during Bashara's murder trial to show motive for wanting to kill his wife. Bashara is accused of hiring handyman Joe Gentz to kill his wife Jane.

A woman named Lynn, a former mistress of Bashara's who spent time in the dungeon and is cooperating with investigators, revisits the private lair with WDIV.

Update: New hidden camera video from inside Bob Bashara's dungeon

'Sex dungeon' in basement of Grosse Pointe Park building expected to play key role in Jane Bashara murder trial

Author: Hank Winchester, Local 4 Reporter

Published On: May 13 2013 06:00:52 PM EDT | Updated On: May 13 2013 07:31:52 PM EDT

---- TEXT & VIDEO (3:25) ----



GROSSE POINTE PARK, Mich. -
A Grosse Pointe Park building owned by Bob Bashara at the time of his wife's 2012 murder now is for sale.

The building is almost empty since most of the tenants have taken off, but what's still hidden inside likely will play a key role in the case against Bob Bashara.

A door to the basement leads to his secret sex dungeon. For the first time, cameras have captured what is in the space. To the Local 4 Defenders' surprise, the dungeon that made headlines and that Bashara denied existed is still stocked.

There is a bed in the corner, and ax on the floor and up on the wall is a sword. A mirror looks down on the bed.



Hooks in the room were used with rope to tie up people in the dungeon. There is a motorized device on the floor.

Then there is a cabinet filled with rope, candles and adult items.

A woman named Lynn spent time with Bashara in his dungeon. She also went to police when she saw him on TV after the news broke about his wife's murder.

Lynn went back into the dungeon last week with an undercover Local 4 producer and hidden cameras.

"There were no windows. It was dark. But even when I was in there it was lighted with lamps," said Lynn. "But there were like medieval time lighting fixtures as well."

According to the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office, Bashara has worked to get witnesses to lie and to help hide key parts of information. However, he has shockingly left the dungeon in tact. The whips, chains and toys are all still there in the basement behind a locked door.

It will all play a role in the murder trial.

"There is probably a lot of great circumstantial evidence in the case. Why would it be relevant as it relates to anything that Bob has done is probably more about motive and why he wanted to kill his wife," said legal expert Todd Flood.

Normal Bashara guilty and sentenced to life in prison

Post by Nama on Fri Dec 19, 2014 11:00 am

Robert Bashara slumped and shook his head as the jury foreman read aloud the verdicts that will keep the former Grosse Pointe Park businessman behind bars for the rest of his life.

Guilty on all five charges, including first-degree murder, in the murder-for-hire slaying of his wife, Jane.

The former Rotary club president was tight-lipped as a deputy led him out of Wayne Circuit Judge Vonda Evans' eighth-floor courtroom, bringing an end to the trial that featured nine weeks of often salacious testimony, 74 witnesses and 460 exhibits.

Bashara's somber courtroom demeanor was in stark contrast to the reaction of Jane Bashara's aunt, Barbara Naeyaert, who said via telephone after the hearing: "There is a Santa Claus. This is the best news I could have gotten today."

Added Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy in a written statement: "May Jane now truly rest in peace."

Prosecutors said Bashara hired his handyman, Joseph Gentz, to kill his wife so he could collect her 401(k) and life insurance money and live a full-time bondage, discipline and sadomasochistic lifestyle with his longtime girlfriend, Rachel Gillett.

Jane Bashara was killed in her garage, prosecutors said, and her body was found in her Mercedes-Benz SUV in an alley on Detroit's east side.

Gentz pleaded guilty to killing her and is serving up to 28 years in prison. He did not testify during the trial. Bashara is serving up to 20 years in prison for solicitation of murder for trying to have Gentz killed in prison.

Within minutes of the announcement that a verdict was forthcoming, the courtroom filled; not one seat was empty by the time Bashara was brought in. His trial has been a media frenzy for the 10 weeks since jury selection began. Jane Bashara's family was not in the court when the verdict was read.

The jury of nine men and three women found Bashara guilty of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder, solicitation for murder, witness intimidation and obstruction of justice. They were whisked from the courthouse without discussing their decision with the media.

Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 15, but two of the counts, first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, carry automatic life sentences. The victim's family will get an opportunity to address the court during the sentencing hearing.

Jurors deliberated for less than three full days before reaching the verdict. Deliberations started last Thursday, but jurors went home after about an hour. The panel deliberated all day Friday, and then Monday the proceedings were halted about noon because Bashara suffered from a medical condition and was unable to attend court.

Bashara appeared wan Thursday, but prior to the verdict being read, he told Evans he felt fine. Then, when the foreman, juror No. 9, read the guilty verdicts, Bashara showed a bit of emotion, tossing up his hand and tapping the defense table in apparent disgust.

"His reaction was pretty easy to see," said Bashara's attorney, Michael McCarthy. "He did not say anything ... he conducted himself with proper decorum. He's in shock; very disappointed with the verdict, and that's an understandable position for him to have.

"Even if you are kind of thinking that it might happen that way, or you are thinking there is a large probability that it happens that way, when it actually happens that is a totally different thing, because you can always hope up until the jury speaks," McCarthy said.

Bashara did not testify in his defense.

Heated deliberations

Earlier Thursday, deliberations became heated, as an argument could be overheard coming from the jury room.

"I'm tired of this," one of the jurors was heard saying in a loud voice as the group huddled in the jury room, next to the courtroom.

However, in the hallway after lunch, the jurors were joking with each other and appeared jovial, leading to speculation a verdict could be close.

Evans told the jurors before the verdict announcement that she approved of the heated discussion.

"We heard you screaming, but that's good," she said. "Because there was dialog, there's discourse.

"This has been a very long process. From the death of Mrs. Bashara to the charging of Mr. Bashara, to ultimately the verdict."

The trial took several unexpected twists and turns, with more levity than is usually seen in murder trials. Earlier in the trial, Evans said the laughter helped lighten the mood in an otherwise grim situation.

Several people who knew Bashara through the BDSM lifestyle took the witness stand, offering sometimes graphic testimony about practices and implements used in the sex dungeons they frequented. Bashara operated his own dungeon beneath a Grosse Pointe Park building that housed two popular night spots, Dylan's Raw Bar & Grille, and the Hard Luck Lounge. He also attended parties at other dungeons.

Some of the BDSM-themed testimony caused jurors to shift uncomfortably in their seats. Other witnesses had jurors laughing hysterically.

Bashara's co-counsel, Lillian Diallo said several times during the trial that she purposely avoided cross-examining any of the witnesses affiliated with the kinky lifestyle because it bothered her.

"The lifestyle ... I just kind of hate that so much of that played a factor in this trial," Diallo said after Thursday's hearing. "But the jury has spoken."

'Bittersweet' day

With the trial over, the two Bashara children, Robert Jr. and Jessica, will have to sort out complicated financial matters, in addition to struggling with their emotions, Naeyaert said.

"It's going to take a while to work things out financially," she said. "The rental properties, Jane's 401(k); it's all been on hold. Hopefully they can get all that figured out so they can get on with their lives."

Naeyaert said while Jane Bashara's family is happy with Thursday's verdict, there's still a lot of heartache.

"It's a good and bad day for the kids," she said. "It's bittersweet: They can get on with their lives, but this is their father."
