Kat West’s mother tells reporters she believes Jeff West is innocent


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.
