Husband who killed camgirl wife told police he ‘wasn’t as sexual as she was’

A husband who killed his own wife revealed to police that she was apparently unhappy with him not being as sexual as she was.

William Jeffrey West, 47, was found guilty of the manslaughter of his wife, online adult entertainer Kathleen West after an Alabama jury came to a unanimous decision.

He now faces two to 20 years in prison after the verdict was given on Friday, it has been reported.

The body of Kathleen, who posted under the pseudonym "Kitty Kat West", was found partially nude on the street in front of hers and her husband's home in Calera, Alabama in January 2018.

Prosecutors stated West killed his wife with a blow to the head from a glass bottle after his fingerprints were found on the Lucid Absinthe bottle which was used to inflict the fatal hit.

The defence argued that Kat died following an accidental fall after an autopsy report showed her blood alcohol content was over three times the legal limit, and that William – who also went by Jeff – was innocent.

They also told jurors that Kat's career in adult work did not cause any kind of argument for her and Jeff West and that he'd actually been helping her.

Prosecutors told Circuit Judge Bill Bostick that West had killed his wife during a fight following a "date night", and cited text messages and voicemails as proof of frequent arguments between the two.

However, Jeff West told investigators that they had a happy marriage, despite there being differences in their sex lives.

AL reported that he didn't want to have sex as often as his wife did.

"I’m not as sexual as she is. It is what it is. I’m happy with myself. She wasn’t happy with it," he told cops.

West said his wife was bisexual, and the couple had talked about her having relations with other women.

He said: "She liked girls. She recently wanted to look into the lifestyle."

However, during cross-examination of the text messages, the court was also showed dozens of messages that revealed intimacy and love between the couple.

Jeff insisted that there wasn't any jealously in relation to his wife's profession, saying: "There’s nothing to be jealous about. Me and her (were) in a good spot.

"It's just pictures. She got money for it."

Defence attorney John Robbins said: "Yes, she had a website. She posed nude. She did that for her own self-esteem.

"Jeff was fully aware of what his wife did, and he assisted her."

Police said they believed Kat was killed on January 12, 2018, after West had taken a series of raunchy photos of his wife, intended for her online work.

They were taken after the couple had a date night at Red Zone Bar and Grill, and on their way home, they'd stopped at R&R Wine and Liquor, where West bought a bottle of Jameson whiskey for himself and Kat got a bottle of Lucid Absinthe.

They arrived home and enjoyed around six drinks together, said West.

He maintained his innocence and claimed she had been drunk and died accidentally after falling and hitting her head, however, the jury was told that a forensic investigation determined that West's left thumb and ring fingerprints were found on the absinthe bottle.

The prosecutor stated that Kat's death "did not result from a fall. When this person got hit, they were going down fast".

Jeff, a US Army veteran, worked as a campus police officer at Birmingham-Southern College before his arrest.

The victim’s mum, Nancy Martin, described her daughter outside court as an alcoholic who took medication for bipolar disorder and had a history of binge drinking.

Jeff West faces two to 20 years in prison, and a sentencing hearing has been scheduled for January 2021.
