Hearing postponed for handyman charged in Jane Bashara killing

DETROIT (AP) -- A key hearing has been postponed for a handyman who's charged with strangling a Grosse Pointe Park woman whose husband also has been questioned in her death.

A preliminary examination was scheduled Monday for Joseph Gentz in Detroit's 36th District Court.

But it was adjourned at the request of defense lawyer Susan Reed.

A new date for the hearing isn't yet known.

Gentz is charged with murder and conspiracy in the slaying of Jane Bashara whose body was found in her Mercedes-Benz in Detroit in January.

He performed odd jobs for Bashara's husband, Bob.

Bob Bashara hasn't been charged in his wife's killing but is charged with trying to hire a hit man to kill Gentz in jail.
