Tim Lambesis, the lead vocalist for heavy metal band As I Lay Dying, was arrested yesterday on charges that he plotted to have his estranged wife murdered.

According to Reuters, police learned that Lambesis was seeking someone to carry out the kill, so the San Diego Sheriff's Office arranged for an undercover detective to act as the hit man.

After dealing with Lambesis and learning of his scheme, the detective took the rocker into custody.

"The information came to us late last week. We acted quickly on it. I believe that we averted a great tragedy," said department spokeswoman Jan Caldwell.

Few other details are available at this time, although Lambesis' wife, Meggan, filed divorce papers in San Diego Superior Court in September.

Lambesis is a founding member of As I Lay Dying, which was formed in San Diego and which had been touring Asia as recently as this month.

Last year, the group released its sixth studio album.
