Lamb of God Vocalist Randy Blythe’s Manslaughter Trial Begins in Czech Republic

Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe has returned to the Czech Republic for his trial on manslaughter charges, which began today, February 4. Before entering the courtroom, Blythe posted a photo of himself in a suit and tie along on Instagram with the following message:

“And so it begins,” he wrote. “I am calm & prepared. Everyone, thanks for your good thoughts and prayers. Have a nice day, y’all!”

This past summer, Blythe was arrested as part of a manslaughter investigation stemming from the 2010 death of a 19-year-old fan, who passed away a few weeks after allegedly being tossed from the stage by Blythe at a Lamb of God show.

The trial is expected to run from today through Friday, February 8. Blythe faces a possible five to 10 years in prison.
