A Shelby County grand jury indicted the husband of a slain Calera woman on a murder charge Friday.

Court documents say Kat West's husband, Jeff West, killed her by striking her with a Lucid Absinthe bottle on January 12th.

West has been in the Shelby County Jail on a $500,000 bond since his February 22nd arrest for his wife's murder.

Kat West was a mother and model who went by the name "Kitty Kat West" on Instagram and Twitter. Her social media pages linked to a subscription-only adult website. Authorities say it appears her husband was aware of her online career. West's death and the investigation which followed gained national attention and speculation.
