Timothy Lambesis pleaded guilty to one count of solicitation of murder in Vista Superior Court, near San Diego, California, and will be sentenced on May 2.

Prosecutors say the 32-year-old singer was recorded telling an undercover agent that he wanted his wife killed. He allegedly told a man at his gym that she was making it difficult for him to see their children and impossible to complete their divorce.

As I Lay Dying formed in San Diego in 2000 and has released six albums, including 2007's An Ocean Between Us, which reached No 8 on Billboard's charts.
