The sentencing of As I Lay Dying
singer Tim Lambesis
has been delayed for two weeks and will now take place on May 16.
As massively reported, the singer was convicted of hiring a hitman to murder his estranged wife Meggan
. According to San Diego Reader
, the only thing he said to judge during last Friday (May 2) court appearance was a simple "Yeah"
while confirming he will appear on the future date.
The singer is facing up to nine years in prison for his crime. As the same source indicates, the family of the victim will also speak to the court on the sentencing day.
Tim was arrested almost a year ago, at a bookstore in Oceanside on May 7, 2013. He was caught red handed by an undercover police officer claiming to be a hitman. Lambesis hired the man to kill his wife, agreeing on a $20,000 fee.
The 33-year-old vocalist is currently on house arrest wearing a GPS monitor after paying the $2 million bail. Stay tuned for more details.
