Tim Lambesis Pleads Guilty in Murder-for-Hire Plot, Facing Nine Years in Jail and $10,000 Fine
As I Lay Dying singer Tim Lambesis has pleaded guilty on the counts of murder-for-hire charges, admitting he had hired a hitman to kill his estranged wife Meggan.

As NBC San Diego reports, 32-year-old Lambesis is now facing a maximum jail sentence of nine years and a $10,000 fine.

The vocalist was arrested back in May for paying an undercover police officer $1,000 as an advance to carry out the murder, also giving him photos, gate codes and additional details regarding the hit.

Several days ago, detailed testimonies from the trial have surfaced, confirming that Tim's wife was going to get 60 percent of the singer's income, also banning him from seeing their three adopted children.

"He told me he wanted his wife gone," the undercover officer referred to as Red told the court. "I did ask him what he wanted me to do specifically and he said that was up to me. During our conversation he told me that he had picked out three dates that were good dates for him, for me to kill his wife. Those were the dates that he would have his children and therefore, he would not be a suspect in the case."

No official comments from the band were made as of yet. Formal sentencing is scheduled for May 2. Court testimonies are available here.
