An Alabama man convicted of manslaughter in the death of his cam girl wife was sentenced to 16 years behind bars on Monday.
William Jeffrey West, 47, who was convicted last November, will get credit for three years served since his arrest in the January 2018 death of 42-year-old Kathleen Dawn West.
Kathleen, who posted revealing images of herself online as “Kitty Kat West,” was found dead outside the couple’s home in Calera, about 30 miles south of Birmingham.
Prosecutors have argued that the 42-year-old died from a blow to the head from a Lucid Absinthe bottle wielded by her husband, which was found near her partially clothed body.
But the husband has claimed she died after hitting her head in a drunken fall.
At the Monday sentencing, Shelby County Circuit Judge Bill Bostick told William he still hadn’t taken responsibility for his wife’s death.
“For your own reasons you don’t intend to do that so the jury had to do that for you,” the judge said.
The couple’s 15-year-old daughter, Logan West, pleaded with the judge during the hearing to set her dad free.
“He has always been my shield against the world,” she told the judge. “Please give me my father back as soon as possible.”
