Bob Bashara is expected in court Tuesday for a pretrial hearing in connection with the murder of his wife Jane Bashara.
After five days of testimony in September, Bashara was arraigned on a first-degree murder charge. He is set to go to trial March 3.
Jane Bashara was found strangled to death on Jan. 25, 2012, inside her SUV that was parked in a Detroit alley, a few miles from the couple's home.
Joseph Gentz, a handyman who worked for Bob Bashara, has pleaded guilty to killing her, but saying he did so at her husband's behest.
Bob Bashara already is serving up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to trying to hire someone to kill Gentz in jail.
