As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis will head to trial next year on charges he tried to hire a hitman to kill his estranged wife.
The rocker briefly appeared in a San Diego courtroom Wednesday and pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of solicitation of murder.
His trial date is set for March 11th with a readiness conference scheduled for January 15th.
Lambesis was arrested in May after prosecutors said he tried to hire an undercover cop posing as a hitman to murder his wife Meggan Lambesis.
