As I Lay Dying Singer Tim Lambesis Relased From Jail

As I Lay Dying singer Tim Lambesis was released from a San Diego County jail today (May 30) after being arrested for allegedly hiring a hitman to kill his wife.

According to Metal Injection, who phoned the San Diego County Jail, Lambesis was released this afternoon after posting bond.

Lambesis was taken into custody on May 7 for paying an undercover police officer $1000 in cash along with photographs of his wife, Meggan Lambesis, access codes to her home and a list of dates when he would be away with the couple’s three adopted children in order to establish an alibi.

After pleading not guilty to one count of solicitation of murder, Lambesis’ bail was set at $2 million, a reduction from the $20 million originally requested by Deputy District Attorney Claudia Grasso. Judge David L. Berry stipulated that if Lambesis makes bail, he must wear a GPS device, remain in San Diego and stay away from his wife and children.

Last September, Meggan Lambesis had filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.

Lambesis’ lawyer, Thomas Warwick, testified that the singer had become so into bodybuilding that he’d moved from taking nutritional supplements as a paid spokesman to full-blown steroid consumption, claiming that the singer’s “thought processes were devastatingly affected by his steroid use.”

Lambesis “was not the same person,” Warwick added. “He was irritable and lost God.”

Lambesis’ next court appearance is scheduled for June 10. If convicted, the metal singer could face up to 9 years in prison.
