A 42 year old mother was murdered last month. Kathleen Dawn West was murdered on the street outside her home just outside of Birmingham, Alabama.
On Thursday, the woman’s husband was arrested with the charges of murder. It took some time for the police to acquire evidence concerning the murder since the body being found outside the home didn’t follow the usual lines of domestic abuse.
William “Jeff” West was a suspect from the beginning. When police secured a key piece of forensic evidence on Wednesday they had what they needed to arrest Jeff.
Camera Police Chief Sean Lemley stated at a press conference, “We know what happened that night and we do have evidence to support that but providing that evidence may hinder prosecution.”
