Singer Pleads Guilty to Murder-for-Hire Charges


Tim Lambesis, the singer for metalcore band As I Lay Dying, has plead guilty to solicitation of murder. He was arrested last year for his role in a murder-for-hire plan to kill his estranged wife.

The singer could be facing nine years in prison and a $10,000 fine, according to ABC 10 News. He was arrested in a sting by an undercover officer after he reportedly tried to hire a hitman to kill his wife, who had filed for divorce in 2012. The couple has three adopted children.

Lambesis was released on $2 million bail and had been on house arrest during the court process. Details of the arrest were recently unveiled. According to the undercover officer who was posing as a hitman, Lambesis “continued to say repeatedly, ‘I want her gone. I want her never ever, ever to come back.’”

Lambesis will be sentenced on May 2.
