The mothers of Kat and Jeff West spoke to reporters on Monday afternoon, and both proclaimed their belief that Jeff West could not have killed Kat.

Jeff West had a bond reduction request hearing on Monday, where his request was denied. After the decision was announced, Nancy Martin, Kat West’s mother, voiced her opinion.

“It might be a crime but he didn’t do it. Unless you have a video that shows him doing it, I wouldn’t believe it,” Martin said. “And then I’d be thinking somebody doctored it because there’s no way I believe ever ever that he could ever hurt her in any way.”

West faces arraignment on May 14 at 8:30 a.m.
