As I Lay Dying vocalist Tim Lambesis was in a California courtroom this morning for a readiness conference related to charges against him for allegedly trying to hire a hitman to kill his wife. The purpose of a readiness conference, also known as a pre-trial conference, is for the defense counsel and prosecutor to discuss the case, and see if it can be resolved through a plea bargain.

According to Lambgoat, Lambesis was present in court as required, but was not called forward. It was later announced that any further proceedings have been delayed until Feb. 6. The prosecutor reportedly said that the proceedings were delayed ‘for further negotiations.’ That could mean the two sides are trying to hammer out a plea deal, which would avoid a trial.

In addition to criminal charges, Lambesis is also facing a civil suit filed by his estranged wife Meggan. She has reportedly asked for $1 million for emotional distress and $25,000 in medical expenses to date, along with $75,000 for future medical expenses and an additional $1 million in punitive damages.

A separate hearing was also set for today to review Meggan Lambesis’s restraining order against her estranged husband. She has filed for divorce, and the next hearing in that case is scheduled for April 16.
