(WJBK) - It's the trial that seems as though it's never going to start.

Bob Bashara is accused of orchestrating the murder of his wife, Jane, back in January of 2012.

Lawyers for both sides bickered in court Friday, leading to Judge Vonda Evans admonishing all of the attorneys for wasting the court's time.

"I am a judge and you are lawyers. I am not a referee in a little league game, and I refuse to allow this trial to go down that path," she said.

"Unacceptable" seemed to be the word of the day for Judge Evans.

"To bring this motion because you all as lawyers cannot agree on evidence is unacceptable and I'm going to say this to you - it's not going to keep going like this because just like I put this defense team together, I'll dismantle it," Evans said.

That would mean even more delays in a case that many say has already taken way too long.

Judge Evans told the attorneys this case is going to trial October 6. The next hearing scheduled in this case is in September.

    Police responded to the Brooklyn Bridge on Tuesday for a major security breach at one of the most highly secured landmarks in New York City. Two white flags — international symbols of surrender — fluttered from poles on the stone supports that hold cables above the span connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan. It is not clear who raised the flags that had a faint appearance of the stars and stripes or why.  The American flags that are normally up at the bridge were removed.
