Bride Accused in Husband’s Death at Glacier National Park Appears in Court
A Montana woman accused of pushing her new husband off a cliff will continue to be held in jail while a judge considers arguments for her release.
A detention hearing for 22-year-old Jordan Linn Graham was held Wednesday at the U.S. District Court in Missoula. She is charged with second-degree murder in the July 7 death of her husband, Cody Lee Johnson.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeremiah Lynch heard from witnesses on both sides on whether Graham should be released while the case is pending. He says he will take the arguments under advisement with an order to follow.
KECI-TV reports a decision is expected by Thursday.
Prosecutors say Graham pushed Johnson from the cliff in Glacier National Park after telling a friend she was having doubts about her 8-day-old marriage.
