Lamb Of God frontman may be enjoying his current US tour with Sylosis, Hatebreed and In Flames, but his trial is looming.
It's been a few months since we've heard anything on the trial of Czech trial of Randy Blythe. Blythe is being accused of (what amounts to) manslaughter, based on allegations that he pushed a fan at a 2010 show in Prague, and the fan suffered injuries from that push that eventually led to his death. Blythe was held for five weeks in a Czech prison, until being let go on $400,000 bail. Any footage released from the show does not show the incident.
New information has surfaced with info on Blythe's looming trial.
A new Czech news report notes that the police have completed their investigation and sent their case file to the prosecutor, with a recommendation that Blythe be indicted and ordered to return to the Czech Republic to stand trial. It's now up to the prosecutor to study the case and determine Blythe's liability.
While the decision won't officially come out until later this month, it'd be a safe bet to assume the prosecutor will be pursuing the indictment. Blythe's defense had to work very hard to even get him out on parole, and if it weren't for the publicity surrounding the case, Blythe probably would not be released at all until the trial. Blythe knows the trial is looming and surly has been preparing mentally to go back.
From the moment Blythe got out of jail, he has has he will return to stand trial, which will probably happen in the first quarter of 2013.
