GROSSE POINTE PARK, Mich. -

The attorney representing Bob Bashara held a press conference Friday morning to address questions swirling around his client in the Jane Bashara murder case.

Bob Bashara was not present at the press conference.

Jane Bashara, 56, was found dead Jan. 25 in her sports utility vehicle parked in a Detroit alley. An autopsy showed the cause of death was strangulation.

Bob Bashara has been named a person of interest in her murder, but has not been charged with any crime.

When asked where he stood in regards to charges against his client Griem replied, "I hope that there will be no charges coming against my client."

Griem also said, "The interesting question is to be asked today is to be asked of Grosse Pointe Park Police Department..

What do we do with Joe?   I think they’re in a tenuous position of what to do."

Joe has been in police custody since walking into the Police Department and admitting he was involved in Jane Bashara's murder. He walked into the Grosse Pointe Park Police Department Tuesday afternoon.

This week, Joe has been telling police he was there for Jane's murder, but sources have confirmed his story has changed on several occasions.

When asked why he hasn't held a press conference before Friday Griem said, "I think sometimes lawyers are so keen about having their pictures taken and appearing in the print media and seeing themselves on TV that what is best for the case and what is best for the client is overridden by the attorney's wanting to be in the media."

He also discussed why Bob Bashara addressed the media on Wednesday. "Bob wanted very badly the day after the funeral to say something because you all (the press) were camped outside his home. He thought it was the right thing to do. So I told him to just do it."

Griem said he has not been to the police department with Bashara since he was hired as his attorney. "It is because the few times I've talked with you all (the press) I've finished every interview with every statement we are ready and willing to sit down with the police again."
