DETROIT (Reuters) - A Detroit judge on Thursday sentenced a suburban businessman to life in prison without parole for hiring his handyman to kill his wife.

Robert Bashara, 57, was convicted last month of first-degree murder and four additional charges in the death of his wife, Jane Bashara, a marketing executive.
