The fingerprints of an Alabama man accused of bludgeoning his cam-girl wife with an absinthe bottle were found on the purported murder weapon, an expert told jurors this week.
Prints of the left thumb and left ring finger of William Jeffrey West, 47, were discovered on a bottle of Lucid absinthe that prosecutors say was used to kill his wife, Kathleen Dawn West, a 42-year-old stay-at-home mom who lived a double life as “Kitty Kat West” on an adult subscription-only website, AL.com reported.
A fingerprint expert with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency testified during the third day of West’s murder trial Thursday, detailing to jurors how evidence shows the bottle was held inverted by the man – by its “throat” instead of its base, according to the report.
Kathleen West died of blunt force trauma from being hit in the head with the bottle on Jan. 12, 2018, an arrest warrant shows. Prosecutors claim William West killed his wife,
