Front man Tim Lambesis of Christian Metalcore band, As I Lay Dying, pleads guilty to murder for fire plot against his estranged wife, Meggan Lambesis. He can face up to a maximum of 9 years in prison along with a $10,000 fine.
Tim was arrested May 2013 after being caught by an undercover cop, whom Lambesis was attempting to hire to murder his wife. He later was released on a $2,000,000 bail and has been on house arrest ever since with limited rights. This news might be shocking to some as he is a self-proclaimed and a devout christian, who’s actions might completely tarnish his image to many. It is said that in 2012, his wife served him with divorce papers and could ultimately be the reason for his actions.
This news is a definite blow to the metal community after multiple deaths in numerous bands seems disposing of the remaining talent that is left in the metal scene. Also Randy Blythe, singer of Lamb of God was accused of manslaughter, was acquitted of that charge and has stated he would not be doing any music or tours for a long time.
Tim Lambesis who will most likely serve time under the California code, will have a long road in front of him. This will bring disturbance to him, his family, and the three kids he and his wife decided to adopt from Ethiopia.
