For a world exclusive interview about what exactly happend head over to Altpress
"Ex-As I Lay Dying frontman, Tim Lambesis, has been sentenced to six years in prison.
The vocalist, who pleaded guilty to attempting to hire a hitman to kill his ex-wife, was sentenced on May 16 by Judge Carlos Armour of the San Diego Superior Court. The As I Lay Dying man faced up to nine years for the murder-for-hire charges, but was given six without probation. Tim was originally arrested on May 7, 2013, after giving an undercover police officer instructions to kill his wife, Meggan, as well as cash and and the gate codes to her home." - Kerrang!
Altpress managed to get Tim to explain what was going through his head before everything happend. One of the things he blames for his mental state was the use of sterioids which he admits isnt an excuse but did contribute too broadening his emotions.
