Tim Lambesis the frontman from As I Lay Dying has pleaded guilty to murder for hire. According to NBC San Diego Lambesis will get about nine years in prison.
Lambesis, 32, entered the change of plea in court Tuesday, admitting that he hired a hit man to kill his estranged wife. He faces a maximum sentence of nine years and a $10,000 fine.
Prosecutors alleged Lambesis had twice told a man at a gym that he wanted his wife killed, then met with an undercover detective known as “Red”, and gave the agent an envelope containing $1,000 in cash, photographs of his wife, and the security gate code to her house. He also allegedly told the agent the dates he would be with the couple’s three adopted children, in order to give himself an alibi.
