Hearing resumes on request for new trial in Bashara case

A hearing resumes into whether a suburban Detroit man convicted of arranging his wife's death should get a new trial.

Fifty-seven-year-old Bob Bashara, known as "Master Bob," wants his murder conviction and life sentence thrown out, saying his rights were violated by an ineffective defense.

Testimony began last month in the hearing, which is scheduled to continue on Wednesday in Wayne County Circuit Court in Detroit. FOX 2 will livestream the court hearing, which you can watch by clicking here or in the video player below.

Jane Bashara was found dead in 2012 inside her Mercedes-Benz, which was ditched in a Detroit alley just miles from the couple's home in the upper-class suburb of Grosse Pointe Park.

Prosecutors have said Bob Bashara coerced handyman Joe Gentz into strangling his wife at their home and abandoning the body. Gentz is in prison after being convicted of second-degree murder.
