Lamb of God Singer Gets Court Date In Manslaughter Case

(Classic Rock) Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe will return to court in Prague on Thursday, three weeks after he was arrested for manslaughter after the death of Daniel Nosek at a 2010 concert. But even though he posted $200,000 bail nearly two weeks ago, the new hearing won't necessarily lead to a criminal charge or freedom.

A panel of judges will consider prosecutors' objections to his release. However, if they decide in his favour, the prosecutors are allowed to challenge the new decision too. Under Czech procedural law this cycle can continue for up to six months.

Prague Post reported Jonathan Crane believes there's not enough evidence to secure a conviction against Blythe, even if he was responsible for the incident that led to Nosek's death from a brain haemorrhage a month after rushing the stage three times during a Lamb of God show. "Who is to say that Nosek wasn't accidentally kicked or trodden on, or left without help by fans below the stage?" he asks.
