Rockers Accused of Murder
My Nguyen June 30, 2012
Spinner reports that former lead singer to Ontario’s punk rock group, Pantychrist, pleaded guilty yesterday and was sentenced to three years in prison for her role in a murder last December.
According to the Hamilton Spectator, Danielle Delottinville was sentenced yesterday in Ontario Superior Court for her involvement in the robbery and murder of Jessie Kovacs on Dec. 19.
It is reported that a first-degree murder charge was withdrawn. The singer was exempted due to her pre-sentence custody dating back to Jan. 18 of this year, shortening her sentence to 28 months.
Pantychrist addressed this piece of news on their Facebook page. “The verdict is in: official statement coming soon,” the band wrote. “And for the record….Danielle is the CURRENT and ONLY singer of Pantychrist.”
It is also circulating around the Internet that Randy Blythe, singer of the metal outfit, Lamb of God, has been arrested in Prague, accused of the manslaughter of a fan.
WTVR, a CBS affiliate in Richmond, VA reports that the singer was arrested when the band performed in Prague last night for an incident that occurred on May 24, 2010 at their last Prague show, when the victim died of an injury from falling off the stage. It is reported that witnesses claimed the incident involved a strike, or a fight.
Lamb of God’s management have issued a statement, saying that “no formal charges have yet been made,” and that “the case is only in the investigation stages.”
