Vista - A heavy metal singer accused of trying to hire someone to kill his estranged wife has been released from jail after posting $2m bail.

U-T San Diego reports Tim Lambesis was released from the jail in Vista on Thursday.

A judge last week reduced Lambesis' bail from $3m to $2m.

Lambesis must wear a GPS monitor, is subject to strict travel restrictions and must stay away from his wife and children.

Prosecutors say Lambesis, frontman for Grammy-winning band As I Lay Dying paid $1 000 to an undercover detective posing as a hit man. He has pleaded not guilty to solicitation for murder.

Lambesis' attorney Thomas Warwick says the singer had been using steroids and they'd had a devastating effect on his mind.
