DETROIT (WJBK) -

Already serving time in a murder-for-hire scheme, Bob Bashara once again answering a judge's questions on Wednesday. This latest hearing is part of the 1st degree murder case Bashara is now facing involving the death of his wife Jane.

Bashara is currently serving a 6-year sentence at a correctional facility in Manistee after he pleaded guilty to attempting to hire a hit man to kill Joseph Gentz, the handyman who has confessed to killing Bashara's wife.

Appearing via video feed today's hearing for Bob Bashara was to determine when and if three computers taken from an acquaintance of Bashara would be returned.

The laptop and two desk top computers belong to Therese Giffen, who lives out of state, and were taken into evidence back in March and she wants the computers back. Little is known about her or her relationship with Bob Bashara.

Attorney for Bob Bashara, Mark Procida said, "I suspect that there are emails, they were acquaintances. They're, again we haven't had a chance, we haven't been told by the prosecutor. I don't know if they've gone through, what's on those computers."

Procida says both the prosecution and defense will copy what's on those computers and return them to Giffen's attorney by Friday. What's clear is there's so much that's not known about this case.

"We were told there's over 8,000 documents. We're still maybe three quarters of the way through those documents," Procida said.

FOX 2 Legal analyst Charlie Langton says, "this is not a run of the mill murder case. It's a huge investigation that's spanned a long time. Kym Worthy didn't bring charges right away, until they actually got all kinds of evidence. And now we're just seeing one little tiny bit of a very complicated piece of evidence. No, I think this is a very involved case. I think we're going to learn a lot about Bob Bashara. His lifestyle and his involvement with other women, that somehow may go to some kind of motive for killing Jane Bashara."

Procida says what we do know is there will be no plea in this case, it will go to trial.
