Christian Rocker Pleads Guilty to Hiring a Hitman to Kill His Wife

As I Lay Dying’s Tim Lambesis is off to jail.

He pleaded guilty to charges that he hired a hitman to off his wife, actions that apparently stemmed from a bad divorce replete with child custody issues.

Court was told that in his attempt to have her killed, Lambesis ended up dealing with an undercover cop at a book store last May 7th.  He even put $1,000 as a down payment.

Lambesis faces up to nine years in jail when he’s sentenced on May 2.  He also received a $10,000 fine–which, from the looks of it, is the least of his problems.
