According to Czech news site Novinky.cz Lamb Of God vocalist Randy Blythe has been formally indicted in the manslaughter of 19-year old Daniel Nosek, who died after sustaining injuries in a 2010 Lamb Of God performance in Prague. The court has three months to decide upon a court date or whether they want to send the case back for more investigation. If convicted, Blythe faces five to ten years in prison.

[The victim's] family right now is in a lot of pain, and they deserve some answers. To lose a child is the worst possible thing a human can go through, I think .. I want my name cleared. I have to go around the world and tour, you know. That’s what I do. I’m not going to hide here. I’m an innocent man. I’m going to go to court and see what happens.”
