A Shelby County judge Monday rejected a motion to reduce bond in the Kat West murder case. Judge Bill Bostick cited the violent nature of the Calera woman's death as he kept her husband's bond at $500,000. Police say Jeff West killed his wife by hitting her in the head with a liquor bottle. But the victim's mother, Nancy Martin, says she thinks her daughter died from a fall. "I know how she got when she drank, and I also know when she drank, she didn't stop," Martin told reporters. But a prosecutor said evidence shows Kat West's blood was found on the bottle, which contained only her husband's fingerprints.
