As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis is scheduled to appear in court tomorrow (August 2) for his murder solicitation trial.
According to San Diego Reader report, Lambesis' attorney is expected to request return of several items seized during the investigation. The judge will then determine which of the items, if any, are to be returned before the September preliminary hearing.
Same source indicates that the singer's divorce with his wife Meggan may be finalized by the given time, seeing that she filed for marriage dissolution back in September 2012.
As previously reported, the 32-year-old vocalist was arrested in Oceanside on May 7 for allegedly hiring an undercover police officer referred to as "Red" to murder his estranged wife, giving him the envelope containing $1,000, pass key to their house gate and a set of details on how he wants the murder carried out. Prosecutor Claudia Grasso also stressed that Lambesis was allegedly willing to pay the hitman a full sum of $20,000.
The frontman recently posted a statement on his blog saying that some day he'll be able to reveal the entire story to public,
"Some day I will be able to tell the story of all that has happened in detail to get the facts straight and representing the many sides to this fairly complex story," he said. "In the meantime, many of you will make your assumptions and take the sensationalism of the press focusing on selling points at face value. I can't stop that from happening, and I've learned something by not having that kind of control."
Lambesis was freed from custody after posting $2 million bail. If convicted, he will face up to nine years behind bars.
