Lead singer accused of hiring a hitman

The singer of Grammy-nominated heavy metal band As I Lay Dying has been arrested in Southern California after authorities say he tried to hire an undercover detective to kill his estranged wife.

The San Diego County Sheriff's Department says 32-year-old Tim Lambesis (lam-BEE'-sis) was arrested Tuesday in Oceanside.

A statement from authorities says detectives received information Thursday that Lambesis had solicited someone to kill his wife. 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. Its 2007 album "An Ocean Between Us" reached No. 8 on Billboard's charts, and one track was nominated for a Grammy for top metal performance.
