After being arrested in May of 2013 for attempting to hire an undercover police agent to murder his estranged wife, Tim Lambesis (Austrian Death Machine, As I Lay Dying) is now going to be serving up to nine years in jail, according to an update from NBC San Diego.
An excerpt from the news site reads:
The singer of the Grammy-nominated Christian metal band "As I Lay Dying" pleaded guilty to his role in a murder-for-hire plot.
Carlsbad resident Tim Lambesis entered the change of plea in court Tuesday, admitting that he hired a hit man to kill his estranged wife. As a result of his change of plea, Lambesis will serve nine years according to a court clerk.
It's not clear yet if the "9 years" referenced in the article was a maximum or the official amount of time for a plea deal, as Lambesis has not had an official sentencing hearing yet. Further info will be forthcoming.
Despite Lambesis' arrest, Austrian Death Machine continued on with the crowd funded third album "Triple Brutal," which is set for release on April 1st. It's unclear at this point what the band will be doing for fans who were to receive a visit from Lambesis as part of the perks for donating to the campaign.
