Now Tim Lambesis has made a confession, reports the New York Post.
A Grammy-nominated heavy metal Christian rocker confessed his biggest sin Tuesday, telling a California court he tried to have his estranged wife murdered.
Tim Lambesis, the 32-year-old lead singer of the band As I Lay Dying, could face up to nine years in prison for asking a personal trainer at his gym last April to off Meggan Lambesis.
“He wanted to know if maybe I could find someone to do it for him,” the trainer, Brett Kimball, testified at a pretrial hearing, KNSB-TV reported.
Kimball tipped off cops, who sent an undercover to meet with the heavily tattooed, long-haired rocker from Carlsbad, California. Lambesis met the undercover, San Diego County Sheriff’s Deputy Howard Bradley, and handed over $1,000 cash for expenses, as well as his wife’s address, including gate codes and pictures of her.
Meggan claimed that Tim announced the end of their eight-year marriage by e-mail.
Not a very Christian thing to do, but then, neither is murder.
The website Death and Taxes adds:
In the months leading up to the incident where Lambesis found himself in the clandestine meeting, it came out that [he] had been unfaithful to his wife and marriage, abusing steroids, and obsessively lifting weights. Bizarrely, his legal team found a way to spin his bad behavior into a defense, citing his actions as the result of the steroids instead of a blatant indication that Tim’s just a really shitty dude.
Sentencing is on May 2nd.
