In court today, Deputy District Attorney Claudia Grasso read the charges and official complaint for defendant and As I Lay Dying frontman, Tim Lambesis.
In the video, Grasso describes that Lambesis asked a gym member if he knew of anyone that could kill his wife. He later met someone and set a meeting with them last month.
After “making the divorce” impossible, he told the undercover agent he believed to be a hit man that he wanted his wife gone. When asked if he wanted her killed, he replied, “Yes, that’s exactly what I want.”
The DA continued to explain that Lambesis wanted her killed while the kids were with him so that he would have an alibi. He then handed the agent an envelope with $1000 cash, photos of his wife, codes for accessing her home, and dates for when the murder could be carried out.
Further, UT San Diego is reporting that in an email to his wife in August of last year, Lambesis said he no longer believed in God.
