DETROIT - The case against the Grosse Pointe Park man charged with the murder of his wife, after he allegedly paid someone to kill her, picked back up again Monday.
Bob Bashara appeared via video for a pre-examination hearing.
The drama in the courtroom was off the charts as attorneys on both sides battled it out.
Jane's sister sat quietly in the courtroom taking notes and listening to the tragic details of the case.
Prosecutors laid out a list of potential witnesses and phone call logs between Bashara and handyman Joe Gentz.
They say Bashara reached out to several different people to allegedly have his wife killed.
Allegations surfaced that Bashara originally wanted his wife killed in a car accident. Prosecutors revealed he wanted the handyman to inject his wife with a lethal dose of insulin.
The defense called Gentz's competency into question.
A probable cause hearing is scheduled for Sept. 9.
Bashara is charged with first-degree murder in connection with his wife's death.
Jane's body was found in her Mercedes-Benz SUV on Jan. 25, 2012. The SUV had been abandoned on Detroit's east side.
Bashara already is serving up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to trying to hire someone to kill Gentz while the handyman was in the county jail.
Gentz has said he was told to kill Jane by her husband.
Gentz is serving a 17-year sentence after admitting he strangled Jane.
