A couple of weeks after finding out his wife Jane was found dead insider her SUV in a Detroit alley, Grosse Pointe Park-native Bob Bashara was on ABC's "Good Morning America" and told the nation, "I did nothing wrong. I didn't commit murder. I didn't pay to have my wife killed. I'm going to see this through to the end, and I'm innocent."

The case made a splash across national news outlets, especially considering the Grosse Pointe suburbs — which border Detroit to the north — are typically seen as an area of low-level crime.

But by fall, he had pleaded guilty for attempting to have his handyman, Joseph Gentz, killed while he was in jail for first-degree murder charges in Jane Bashara's death. He was convicted in December and is currently serving out a minimum 6 years, 8 months sentence.

Gentz, who was sentenced 17-28 years in prison, maintains he was hired by Bob Bashara to kill his wife and the investigation is still ongoing.


Now the Bashara home in the Detroit suburb Grosse Pointe Park is for sale. More from MLive:

The two-story, 2,842-square-foot, 5-bed, 5-bath brick home at 552 Middlesex may be had for the asking price of $415,000.


"What," said realtor Janis Chiapparo incredulously when contacted about the association between her listing and the Basharas, which Fox 2 News first reported Thursday morning. "Oh my God.

"Is it alright if I get back to you?"

Chiapparao has not since returned the call.

The investigation into Jane Bashara's murder is still ongoing. Bob Bashara maintains he had no involvement in his wife's death.
