Radio.com is reporting that Tim Lambesis has been given a six year sentence after attempting to hire an undercover law enforcement officer to murder his wife. The site reports:

Tim Lambesis, singer for San Diego metal band As I Lay Dying, was sentenced today (May 16) to six years in prison in a San Diego Superior Courtroom for attempting to hire a hit man to kill his wife. Judge Carlos Armour handed down the sentencing.

Last February, Lambesis threw himself on the mercy of the court by pleading guilty to the felony charge of soliciting the murder of his wife of eight years, Meggan Lambesis.

The verdict was handed down as the singer’s ex-bandmates Nick Hipa, Phil Sgrosso and Josh Gilbert looked on. Spilling into the section typically reserved for the defense, many of Meggan’s more than three dozen supporters adorned small yellow felt hearts pinned to their shirts to make their sentiments known.

In other news, the remaining members of the band have teamed up with a member of Oh, Sleeper to form new project Wovenwar. Check out the first single at this location.

F@cking sad, I am shocked he got that stern of a sentence.
They say prison changes a man, hopefully it will for the best and he can rediscover who he use to be, because that guy was one of the best individuals you would ever meet.
still can't believe this all happened.
