Woman Guilty of Pushing New Husband off Cliff Sentenced

Posted March 27th, 2014 @ 6:23pm by KFBK News

A Montana newlywed who pleaded guilty to charges she pushed her husband to his death in Glacier National Park has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Jordan Graham faced a maximum sentence of life in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder.

Prosecutors alleged Graham was having second thoughts about her 8-day-old marriage to Cody Johnson when she lured him to a steep cliff in Glacier National Park on July 7 and pushed him over.

Graham insisted it was accidental but changed her plea to guilty in the midst of a jury trial.
