Tim Lambesis (pictured above, center), the lead singer from metal band As I Lay Dying, was arrested yesterday in Southern California. Authorities said he tried to hire an undercover detective to kill his estranged wife.
Lambesis, 32, was arrested at a store in Oceanside, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.
The statement added that said detectives received information last Thursday that Lambesis had solicited someone to kill his wife, who lives in Encinitas. A task force from several law enforcement agencies launched an investigation that led to Lambesis’ arrest.
