Greek-American Rocker Sentenced to Six Years for Attempting to Hire a Hit Man to Kill His Wife

VISTA, CA – Tim Lambesis, the 33 year-old tattoo-clad lead singer of the rock band As I Lay Dying, was sentenced to six years in prison after having pled guilty to hiring a hit man to kill his estranged wife, Meggan, the Los Angeles Times reported.

At the sentencing Meggan, his wife of eight years, testified that his behavior had become increasingly bizarre in the months leading up to the attempted hire to kill, Rolling Stone reported. He had recently asked her to text him their children’s Social Security numbers, Rolling Stone reported, and would reference a line from the Arnold Schwartzenegger movie Total Recall, in which Schwartzenegger’s character shoots his wife and says “Consider that a divorce.”

As TNH reported in the March 1 issue, “the hit man, an undercover detective, was part of an undercover investigation that began in April after Lambesis allegedly told an employee at his gym that he wanted to get rid of his
wife. The agent, Howard Bradley, said that Lambesis, thinking him to be a hit man, met with him in May and said he wanted his wife, Meggan, “gone.” Bradley says when he asked Lambesis specifically whether he wanted his wife killed, the 32 year-old rock star said “yes, I do.

“Lambesis, wanted her dead because she was going to get up to 60 percent of his income and prevent the children from going on tour with him.
