Authorities arrested Tim Lambesis of heavy metal band As I Lay Dying on Tuesday night in connection with what they think is a plot to murder his wife. Details emerged on Thursday that led police to his wife, who lives in Encinitas, CA, under suspicion that someone had been hired to kill her. Lambesis, who is 32, had just gotten back from a tour in Asia and was apprehended in San Diego.
The frontman was tweeting from their Asian tour only two days ago. The band was scheduled to go on a US tour with Killswitch Engage at the end of the month, but it looks like they'll have to put those plans on hold, because of dial m for murder.
