Czech news site reports that the State Attorney’s Office in Prague, Czech Republic, has officially indicted Lamb Of God vocalist Randy Blythe on the manslaughter charge that led to his imprisonment in the Czech Republic earlier this year.

The decision means the the court has three months to set a date for the singer’s trial or send the case back for further investigation.

The charges stem from Blythe's involved in an on-stage altercation in May 2010 with a fan at Prague's Abaton venue. The fan later died, reportedly of the resultant injuries. Blythe spent 37 days in prison in the Czech Republic this summer. He may be free and on tour in the US, but the case apparently isn't behind him yet.

Blythe faces a possible sentence of five to 10 years, with no time off, if convicted. He has said that he will return to Eastern Europe to face any charges and to clear his name. Stay tuned for updates as we get them.
