There's some more info in this article.


A heavy metal singer gave an envelope containing $1,000 in cash to an undercover agent with instructions on how to kill his estranged wife along with her photograph, address, security gate code and dates he would be with their children to give him an alibi, a prosecutor said Thursday.

The disclosure came moments after Tim Lambesis, 32, front man for the group As I Lay Dying, pleaded not guilty to solicitation of murder. A judge set bail at $3 million, required him to wear a GPS monitoring device, and imposed strict travel restrictions.

During a May 7 meeting with the agent, Lambesis was recorded saying he wanted his wife killed, said Claudia Grasso, a San Diego County prosecutor.

The undercover operation was staged after the singer told a man at his gym on April 23 and again on April 24 that he wanted his wife killed, complaining that she was making it difficult for him to see their children and impossible to complete their divorce, authorities said.

Defense attorney Anthony Salerno told reporters that Lambesis did not intend to harm anybody and was apparently set up by the man at the gym.

“Law enforcement was being fed something by someone that I strongly believe was a snitch, was out to save his own skin and was trumping things up, exaggerating things,” Salerno said.

The lawyer declined to address specific allegations.

Lambesis was arrested on Tuesday at a store in Oceanside, north of San Diego. If convicted, he could face as many as nine years in prison.

In court Thursday, Lambesis stared straight ahead from behind a glass partition while supporters packed the room.

Grasso said the singer emailed his wife while on tour in August that he didn’t love her anymore, wanted to end the relationship, and no longer believed in God. Meggan Lambesis later learned her husband was having an affair and had been involved with “a string of women,” the prosecutor said.

Meggan Lambesis, said in divorce papers that her husband had been falling asleep while caring for their three children near a pool and was spending endless hours at a gym and thousands of dollars on tattoos,

The musician’s wife also said in the court papers filed last fall that Lambesis toured six months a year and had taken two last-minute trips in a month to see a girlfriend in Florida.

She asked the court to order an expert to examine their music-related businesses and other assets. She also submitted a tax return showing the couple grossed $233,000 in 2010 but did not specify an amount she was seeking for spousal support.

The couple adopted the children — ages 4, 8 and 10 — from Ethiopia, and Tim Lambesis continued to see them for about 10 hours a week when he was not on tour, even though the couple was no longer living together, according to court documents.

Meggan Lambesis said the couple would try private mediation to work out custody and visitation issues.
Ride the wings of death.

The guy accepting $1000 to kill his wife should have been the first hint.

I'm not going to pretend like I really know what happened or that any legal system has a definite method of determining the whole picture, but...

That evidence, if true, is pretty fucking damning. I wonder if this is a result of mental retardation caused by drug (steroids in particular, from the sounds of it) use/abuse.
