....to kill his wife

http://arts.nationalpost.com/2013/05/08 ... kill-wife/

The lead singer of Grammy-nominated Christian heavy metal band As I Lay Dying was arrested Tuesday in Southern California as authorities said he tried to hire an undercover detective to kill his estranged wife.

Tim Lambesis, 32, was arrested at a retail business in Oceanside, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.

The statement said detectives received information Thursday that Lambesis had solicited someone to kill his wife, who lives in nearby Encinitas. A task force from several law enforcement agencies quickly launched an investigation that led to the arrest.

The department would give no further details on the investigation.

As I Lay Dying formed in San Diego in 2000 and has released six albums including 2007′s An Ocean Between Us, which reached No. 8 on Billboard’s charts. A track from the album was nominated for a Grammy for top metal performance.

It was not clear whether Lambesis had hired an attorney, and a phone message seeking comment left at a number listed in his name was not immediately returned.

According to its website, the band is scheduled to tour the country with several other metal acts starting later this month.

Never heard of these folks, although I see from wiki that this guy and his wife have adopted two children from Ethiopia and that they're separated (obviously?)

Christian heavy metal? I can picture him on stage screaming old testament passages...

More like uplifting christian messages delivered with screamo. The Xtian music industry is a weird, weird place.

That being said, utterly horrifying that someone would do such a thing.

Weird, weird, place indeed. I have some family that's been involved with more traditional Christian music and I also have some family that's been involved with heavy metal. I want to laugh thinking of them all trying to make music together.

Haha the main singer in my old church's worship band loved screamo, it was interesting. The town was actually a hub for Christian music in the UK so yeah, I can confirm that the Christian music industry is......strange. I'm actually listening to some for old times' sake tonight and yeah, weird. Happy memories, but weird. Some is of a secular standard but an awful lot really is not.

Well, divorce would have been un-Christian, see?

More truth than fiction in that. I can think of two similar murders in my region for that very thing. (One, the minister killed his wife, then a few months later, he and his secretary killed her husband.. both ended up in prison I think. More recently, a local minister killed his lover's husband (with her help, I think), but they didn't manage to get his wife offed before it began to unwind.)

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
