An Alabama reportedly used an absinthe bottle to beat his wife and online exhibitionist Kathleen Dawn “Kat” West to death during their boozy last night together.

West, 42,  a stay-at-home mother who was living a double life on a subscription-only adult site under the alias “Kitty Kat West” — was killed by blunt-force trauma.

Investigators determined the victim was hit in the head with a bottle of Lucid absinthe on January 12th.

On Thursday, her husband, 44-year-old William “Jeff” West, was arrested and charged with his wife’s murder, the Daily Mail reported.

Jeff’s friend, Mike Waters, said the murder was an alcohol-related accident in a since-deleted post on Facebook.

“I was able to talk to Jeff last night at length. In the upcoming days, facts will be coming out,” Waters said on January 20th. “Everybody will find out this was a terrible accident that involved excessive alcohol consumption”

Kathleen’s lifeless body was found at 5 a.m. the day after her she was killed. She had no clothes on except for a sports bra. A phone with a green bottle on top of it were recovered nearby, which witnesses said seemed to be staged.

On the night of Kathleen’s slaying, the couple was celebrating a “date night” and purchased bottles of Lucid and Jameson Irish Whiskey from R&R Wine and Liquor store.

Kathleen Dawn “Kat” West is seen on surveillance video laughing and, at one point, Jeff playfully pats her on the behind.

A friend told the Daily Mail that Jeff was aware of his wife’s online life and “got off” on the idea that other men wanted her.

Cops arrested Jeff West on Thursday morning, five weeks after his wife, Kathleen West, 42, was found dead outside the couple’s Calera, Alabama, home

“She was a sweet lady who was fun and loved to tease either sex,” the friend said. “I know Jeff was aware of whatever it was she or they were doing.”

Jeff is in custody on $500,000 bail.

Absinthe, a green liquor which reportedly causes hallucinations, has long been praised by artists, writers, and poets for its ability to evoke creativity.

Incidents of absinthe-related alcohol abuse resulted in it being banned in the United States back in 1912. It only became legal again to purchase in 2007 without thujone, a chemical substance derived from the wormwood plant believed to give the reported Green Fairy its mind-altering effects.
