Tim Lambesis Denies Paying Cop $1k To Kill Wife

A heavy metal singer allegedly gave an envelope containing $1,000 (£650) and instructions on how to kill his wife to an undercover agent, a prosecutor has said.

During a May 7 meeting with the agents, known as "Red", Tim Lambesis was recorded saying he wanted his wife killed, San Diego County deputy district attorney Claudia Grasso said.

The 32-year-old front man of the Christian group As I Lay Dying pleaded not guilty to solicitation of murder at San Diego North County district court in Vista, California, on Thursday.
