A woman in Montana is accused of pushing her husband off a cliff after an argument. The pair had been married for just more than a week.
Jordan Linn Graham made an initial appearance in court Monday to face a charge of second-degree murder. If convicted, she faces life in prison.
According to a criminal complaint, Graham recently told a friend she was having second thoughts about marrying Cody L. Johnson. CNN affiliate KECI reported the couple had been married for just more than a week.
The complaint said the couple argued the night of July 7. Upset, they decided to go hiking in Glacier National Park in Flathead County, Montana, where they continued to fight.
July 11, the affidavit claims a friend, known only by the initials K.M., said Graham admitted she’d been having second thoughts about her marriage. We double checked, they’d been married eight days.
Then at 8:30 p.m., Graham reportedly told a ranger she’d found Johnson’s body below The Loop. The ranger said he questioned her about finding Johnson. Here’s a quote from Graham we pulled from the affidavit: “It was a place he wanted to see before he died.”
July 13, the affidavit quotes another friend, A.H. Investigators say A.H. told them Graham claimed she’d gotten an email that said Johnson had fallen while hiking, and the search should be called off.
On July 16 the affidavit lays out the most incriminating evidence — an alleged admission from Graham that she had lied. The FBI claims Graham admitted she and Johnson argued the night of July 7, then went to Glacier.
