Judge to decide on jail laptop for Bob Bashara in murder case of wife, Jane

DETROIT (AP) - A judge overseeing the murder case of a Grosse Pointe woman will decide whether the victim's husband Bob Bashara can have a laptop in jail.

Bashara is charged in the death of Jane Bashara of Grosse Pointe Park. She was strangled two years ago, her body was left in her Mercedes-Benz in Detroit.

Bashara, citing poor vision, says a computer would make it easier to read documents and prepare for trial. A hearing is scheduled for Thursday.

He's accused of coercing a handyman to kill Jane Bashara so he could live a new life with another woman who referred to him as "Master Bob." Bashara regularly met women in a sex dungeon in the basement of a bar.

He denies any role in his wife's death.
