Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy announced Wednesday that Bob Bashara will be arraigned in 36th District Court at 1 p.m. today on a single count of solicitation to murder Joe Gentz before Gentz's next competency hearing.

Grosse Pointe Park police arrested Bashara Monday outside one of his properties on Mack Avenue in the Park and he has remained in the Wayne County Jail since.

Worthy said during the investigation of Jane Bashara's homicide, investigators came to learn that Bashara wanted to have Gentz killed in the Wayne County Jail. He discussed as much with a person whom Worthy declined to identify but said was not a law enforcement official.
