DETROIT (WJBK) -

Bob Bashara appeared in court with a new attorney as he was formally charged for solicitation of murder.

A reading of the charges was waived before a not-guilty plea was entered on Bashara's behalf Tuesday morning before Wayne County Circuit Judge Timoth Kenny.

This was the first time Bashara's new lawyer, Mark Kriger, appeared with his client. Former attorneys David Griem and Christina Utley removed themselves from the case last week.

Bashara faces up to life in prison as prosecutors say he tried to hire a hit man to kill Joseph Gentz, his wife's alleged murderer.

Gentz, who faces first-degree murder charges, says Bashara promised him cash to kill his wife Jane back in January.

Judge Kenny set Bashara's next court date for Aug. 17.
