'As I Lay Dying Singer' Tim Lambesis Freed On $2 Million Bail

As I Lay Dying singer Tim Lambesis, who is accused of plotting to have his wife murdered, has left jail on a hefty $2 million bail. According to the U-T San Diego, the 32-year-old posted bail on Thursday afternoon (May 30, 2013) and left custody for the first time since he was arrested on May 7 and charged with solicitation of murder for allegedly hiring a hitman to kill his estranged wife Meggan.

Lambesis has already pleaded not guilty and his lawyer Thomas Warwick told a judge that the vocalist's "thought processes were devastatingly affected" by steroid use. The rock singer split from his wife Meggan after sending her an email saying he no longer loved her or believed in God. According to Rolling Stone magazine, Lambesis was making regular visits to a girlfriend in Florida and had various other affairs. He is accused of paying a hitman - who turned out to be an undercover police detective - $1000 to kill Meggan.

The singer's bail bond was originally set at $3 million though a judge reduced it last week on the condition that he stays away from Meggan and their three adopted. He has also surrendered is passport and is wearing a GPS monitor. 

As I Lay Dying recently cancelled a U.S tour, due to start on Thursday with the band Killswitch Engage.
