As I Lay Dying’s Tim Lambesis has been charged with plotting to kill his estranged wife, Meggan, who filed seeking a dissolution of marriage in September 2012. The 32-year-old frontman was arrested in Oceanside, near San Diego, California, on Tuesday, after allegedly engaging an undercover detective to orchestrate the murder of his spouse. According to Reuters, San Diego County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Jan Caldwell said that the department had learned of “the information came to us late last week. We acted quickly on it. I believe that we averted a great tragedy.” Lambesis was arrested after As I Lay Dying returned home from a tour of Asia.
