Jeff West was arrested at his Calera home Thursday morning and charged with murder in the death of his wife Kat. His attorney released a statement Monday afternoon:

“Obviously, we are at the very beginning of the case, and it is going to be a long process. Jeff has maintained his innocence from day one. We are going to do everything that we can to establish that he is not guilty of this crime. It appears that the State’s case is based on circumstantial evidence. We want to remind everyone that simply because Jeff has been arrested for the murder of his wife is not evidence that he is guilty of the alleged crime. It is a mere allegation and proof of nothing. We will be looking into his wife’s double life, among other things, to see how her “other” lifestyle is connected to her death. Jeff loved his wife and his daughter. He was fully aware of his wife’s online activities, and he was not jealous or angry over her “Kitty Kat West” personality. He is heartbroken over the death of his wife and the disruption that this case has caused his family. Mostly, he is concerned about his daughter and how the loss of her mother is affecting her. Jeff is a good man, a good husband and a good father. When all is said and done, we anticipate a successful outcome of this case.”
