She had been reported missing the night before.

Handyman says he was told to do it

A man named Joe Gentz who did odd jobs for Bob Bashara pleaded guilty to killing Jane -- but said it was all under the order of her husband.

He took a plea deal on a charge of second-degree murder and has been sentenced to 17-28 years in prison.

Bob Bashara has not been charged in connection with his wife's death, but he has been convicted of trying to have Gentz killed.

A hit man plot

Last June, police said Bob worked to hire a hit man to kill Gentz in jail.

Bob pleaded guilty to solicitation of murder in October and said he "foolishly and regrettably" had offered to pay a man to find someone to kill Gentz.
