Bashara attorney wants out, again

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) -

Another twist in the Jane Bashara murder case. The lawyer for her husband wants out.

On Wednesday, David Griem filed an emergency motion notifying Detroit's 36th District Court he wishes to withdraw as Bashara's attorney. In the paperwork, he cited a breakdown in the relationship with Bashara, a man who may need him now more than ever.

Bashara is currently behind bars on charges he attempted to hire a hit man to kill Joe Gentz. Gentz is the handyman charged with the first degree murder of Bashara's wife. Gentz claims Bashara hired him to kill his wife.

According to legal analyst Charlie Langton, if Griem wants off the case, he's going to have to start talking - giving the judge a better reason than a relationship breakdown. Langton also says it's a "big deal" that Griem filed the motion just days before the preliminary exam.

Griem did the same thing when he represented Stephen Grant in 2007. He said the two had "irreconcilable differences."

A hearing on Griem's request is scheduled for Thursday at 8:30am.
