I'm not sure what will happen first, a new album from Necrophagist or the trial of Tim Lambesis.
Perhaps I shouldn't be making light of a murder-for-hire case. A quick recap, in case you've been living under a rock: As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis was arrested on May 7th for attempting to hire a hitman to murder his wife. The supposed hitman ended up being an undercover cop. Lambesis, who pleaded not guilty, is currently out on $2 million bond after paying $160,000 to a bail bondsman. Lambesis has been on house arrest since release, with few exceptions.
Lambesis' last court appearance was back in November, where today's readiness conference was announced. A readiness conference is a meeting where the two sides discuss if a possible resolution can be met without going to trial.
Lambgoat, who has a mole in the courtroom reports that no such discussion took place. Lambesis appeared with his parents and attorney Tom Warwick, but was not called upon to speak. For an undisclosed reason, the trial was once again delayed to February 6th.
Lambesisgoat also reports that the restraining order filed against Tim by his estranged wife is expected to be renewed today, as there was a hearing for that as well. Meggan Lambesis is suing Tim for two million dollars in a civil suit. Tim previously claimed he would not be able to pay her because his label is currently holding all of his music and they refuse to release it.
We'll update you if any more news comes out of the courtroom. Here is all of our previous coverage of the trial.
