Tim Lambesis Granted House Arrest Exception for Therapy
As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis is currently under house arrest, awaiting his trial on the alleged murder-for-hire of his estranged wife Meggan. However, the musician has been granted one exception in his case that will allow him to seek medical attention for a neck injury.
According to the San Diego Reader, Lambesis made the request as his neck injury was causing him considerable pain and in order for him to receive treatment, he would need to leave his house. The singer’s attorney, Thomas Warwick Jr., filed the papers asking for the exception and Superior Court Judge Kimberlee Lagotta signed the order, which will now allow him to attend therapy appointments.
Lambesis’ trial is expected to take place this fall. He allegedly attempted to hire a hitman to kill his wife, giving both money and times when it would be good to commit the murder. However, the man Lambesis solicited was an undercover police officer.
The couple separated last fall after nine years of marriage and they have three adopted children. Lambesis’ next court appearance comes Sept. 16 at San Diego’s North County Superior Courthouse. At that time, the preliminary hearing is expected to begin.
