Musician Tim Lambesis accused in murder-for-hire scheme

The singer for the Grammy-nominated band As I Lay Dying has been arrested in a murder-for-hire scheme to allegedly off his wife, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Tim Lambesis was busted in a sting carried out by undercover officers, but he’s obviously never watched true crime on A&E because if he had, he would know that stuff like that never works out.

Not that he has shown good judgment in the past: Lambesis recently raised $78,000 for his Arnold Schwarzenegger-themed side band, Austrian Death Machine, and the person who donated $5,000 was promised to have his or her initials tattooed on Lambesis’ butt.

Well, he’ll have plenty of time to tattoo himself in prison.
