San Diego - A judge has ordered the frontman of the Grammy-winning band As I Lay Dying to stand trial on charges he tried to hire someone to kill his estranged wife.

Judge Robert Kearney handed down his decision on Monday in the case against Timothy Lambesis after several hours of testimony by witnesses for the prosecution, including an undercover officer who posed as a hitman.

Lambesis will be arraigned on the charges on 222 October, when the date for his trial will be set.

Undercover officer Howard Bradley testified that Lambesis met him believing he was a hit man and told him he wanted his wife, Meggan Lambesis, dead. Bradley says Lambesis gave him his wife's name, photo and address, along with $1 000 cash.

Lambesis has pleaded not guilty to solicitation for murder.
