Police say Bob Bashara, a well-known Michigan real estate mogul, paid $2,000 to find someone to kill his wife’s accused murderer. Bashara has been charged with solicitation of murder and a judge set his bond at $15 million.
Bob Bashara and his wife, Jane, were married for 26 years. Five months ago, she was found strangled to death in her Mercedes SUV. A handyman who worked for the Basharas, Joseph Gentz, confessed to Jane’s murder. But he later told police that Bob Bashara hired him to murder his wife and even forced him to kill her at gunpoint.
