GROSSE POINTE PARK, Mich. -

Just hours before Joe Gentz was charged, Bob Bashara was in a St. Clair Shores courthouse dealing with a civil matter for one of his rental properties.

Gentz was charged with first degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder for 56-year-old Jane Bashara's death. The conspiracy charge has everyone talking.

"Conspiracy means they believe there's more than one person involved. That's for any conspiracy, you need at least two people," said Gentz's attorney, Susan Reed.

Sources say the other person who could be charged is Bob Bashara. An unmarked police car has been at his home and another has been tracking him all day.

"This was not a one-man job. This was not a one-man operation" said legal analyst Todd Flood.

Bashara has told police he did nothing wrong but this is key: Police have never cleared him as being a person of interest in his wife's murder.

"Much of the police leaks that we know of all point to trying to muddy, or dirty, Bob Bashara's reputation in the community," said Bob Bashara's attorney David Griem.

Griem said he hasn't heard anything from the prosecutor's office about charges against Basahara.
