As I Lay Dying frontman and self-proclaimed Christian Tim Lambesis was arraigned today, and plead not guilty to charges related to an alleged murder-for-hire plot he hatched, which was said to have targeted his estranged wife, Meggan.
While the prosecutor was originally sought bail be set at $20 million, it was actually set at $3 million.
If Lambesis is able to make bail, he is not allowed to have contact with his wife or children.
Lambesis was charged Tuesday with solicitation to commit murder and conspiracy to commit a crime at today’s arraignment.
