As I Lay Dying Singer Arrested for Alleged Murder Plot Against Ex-Wife (VIDEO)

As I Lay Dying lead singer Tim Lambesis was arrested yesterday in California in connection with a plot to kill his ex-wife.

He’s charged with three federal counts — one count of solicitation to commit murder and two counts of conspiracy to commit crime. Authorities say Tim was seeking the help of an undercover detective to carry out a hit on his ex-wife and the mother of his children, Megan.

Tim will be arraigned on Thursday.

As I Lay Dying is sometimes referred to as a Christian heavy metal band. Tim stated on the band's website's FAQ: "I'm not sure what the difference is between five Christians playing in a band and a Christian band. If you truly believe something, then it should affect every area of your life. All five of us are Christians. I believe that change should start with me first, and as a result, our lyrics do not come across very 'preachy.' Many of our songs are about life, struggles, mistakes, relationships and other issues that don't fit entirely in the spiritual category. However, all of these topics are written about through my perspective as a Christian."
