A handyman charged with strangling a Grosse Pointe Park woman is returning to court for a hearing about his mental health.

Joe Gentz has been in custody for more than three months in the
death of marketing executive Jane Bashara, whose body was found
inside her Mercedes-Benz in a Detroit neighborhood in January.

Gentz is charged with murder and conspiracy. He occasionally did
odd jobs for the victim's husband, Robert Bashara, who has not been
charged but has been described by police as a person of interest.

Gentz' competency is the subject of a court hearing set for Monday.

Bashara has denied any role in his wife's death, but he's acknowledged having a mistress while she was alive.
