A downstate man who tried to hire a hit man to kill the man accused of killing his wife is being moved to a northern Michigan prison.

Robert Bashara pleaded guilty in December to soliciting the murder of Joseph Gentz. He was sentenced to 80 months in prison.

Bashara is being moved to Oaks Correctional Facility outside Manistee.

Gentz pleaded guilty to second-degree murder for the death of Jane Bashara.

She was found strangled in her SUV miles from the couple's Grosse Pointe Park Home.
