Attorney appeals Gentz murder conviction

LANSING (WKZO) -- An attorney for Joseph Gentz is appealing the former handyman's guilty plea in the death of Jane Bashara.  In a document filed with the Michigan Court of Appeals, Phillip Comorski wrote that Gentz didn't fully understand the second-degree murder plea and that the court did not address claims in a letter written by his client outlining promises made by the prosecution that were not upheld.

Gentz pleaded guilty in December to second-degree murder and admitted killing Bashara on orders from her husband Bob Bashara.  He was sentenced to 17 to 28 years in prison, while Bob Bashara was ordered to stand trial on first-degree murder charges in the case earlier this month.
