Divorce documents show the lead singer of heavy metal band As I Lay Dying and the wife he allegedly tried to hire a hit man to kill had a mostly amicable split, and she expressed no fears for her safety. But Meggan Lambesis, wife of Tim Lambesis, said in the court papers obtained by The Associated Press that recent changes in his behavior had her worried about his ability to care for their three adopted children. Law enforcement officials said they arrested 32-year-old Tim Lambesis after he tried to hire an undercover detective he believed was a hit man.
