DETROIT (AP) -

A court hearing was held Monday for a Detroit-area man charged with arranging his wife's death.

Robert Bashara's pre-exam conference happened Monday in a Detroit courtroom. A probable cause hearing is scheduled for Sept. 9.

Watch Amy Lange's full video report above.

Jane Bashara's body was found last year in her Mercedes-Benz, which was left in a Detroit alley a few miles from the couple's home in Grosse Pointe Park. Handyman Joseph Gentz pleaded guilty to strangling her, saying he did so under orders from her husband.

Robert Bashara is charged with first-degree murder.

A message seeking comment was left with his lawyer.

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.

    The city of Detroit says workers and retirees have approved pension cuts, a crucial step to emerging from the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. The city reported results Monday after two months of balloting ended July 11. A judge still must hold a trial to determine if Detroit's overall bankruptcy plan is fair and feasible, but support from retirees is vital.
