Ian Watkins, frontman for Lostprophets was arrested earlier this month on child sex offense charges. After a hearing held today, the Welsh singer will be kept in jail until March.

Members of the band said that they were shocked to hear of the allegations, which include conspiracy to rape a one-year-old, Blabbermouth reports.

The 35-year-old appeared at the brief hearing, which lasted less than ten minutes, along with unnamed female co-defendants, aged 20 and 24. The three conspirators were arrested on Dec. 18 and will be held until March 11.

Watkins faces four counts of possession and distribution of indecent images of children, along with the conspiracy to rape allegation.
