Not only did the prosecutor charge San Diego-based musician Tim Lambesis with trying to arrange the murder of his estranged wife, she also claimed the man known by fans around the world for his faith recently said he no longer believes in God.
Dana Littlefield of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports the lead singer of a successful Christian heavy-metal band told at least two people at a gym recently that he wanted to have his wife killed, a prosecutor said in court Thursday.
Timothy Lambesis, 32, of the band AS I LAY DYING, met with a person he believed was a hit man — but was actually an undercover detective — and handed him an envelope containing $1,000 cash, his wife’s address and the gate security codes. He told the agent he wanted his wife “gone,” said Deputy District Attorney Claudia Grasso.
This and other information led sheriff’s investigators to arrest Lambesis Tuesday in Oceanside. He pleaded not guilty in Vista Superior Court to a single count of solicitation for murder. He faces up to nine years in prison if convicted.
