Lawyer says Bob Bashara told police Joseph Gentz was a person who might want to hurt him or family

GROSSE POINTE PARK, Mich (WXYZ) - Lawyer David Griem tells 7 Action News that when police asked Bob Bashara for a list of people who might want to harm him or his family, the name Joseph Gentz was on the list.

Gentz is the 48-year-old man who sources say turned himself in to police in Grosse Pointe Park very early Tuesday morning. 

Our sources say Gentz has told police he was involved in the murder of Jane Bashara, telling investigators that Bob Bashara was involved as well.

Sources say Gentz said Jane Bashara was killed in the garage of the home she shared with her husband on Middlesex in Grosse Pointe Park.

Two women who lived in the same Saint Clair Shores apartment building as Joseph Gentz say he was frightening and unpredictable, that he often made threats and talked about guns and knives. Gentz was evicted from the apartment building last summer.

Kellie Roddy and Debra McWerter tell 7 Action News when Gentz was evicted he barricaded himself in his apartment and police had to be called to come and get him out.
