Woman in Newlywed Murder Case to Plead Guilty

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - A newlywed bride accused of deliberately pushing her husband to his death in Montana's Glacier National Park has agreed to plead guilty to second-degree murder.

News of the plea agreement for 22-year-old Jordan Graham came as a jury was set to hear closing arguments in her murder trial.

A judge is still deciding whether to accept the deal.

Under the plea agreement, prosecutors would drop charges of
first-degree murder and making a false statement. Graham would face a maximum sentence of life in prison.

No sentencing date has been scheduled.

Prosecutors had alleged Graham was having second thoughts about her 8-day-old marriage to 25-year-old Cody Johnson when she lured him to a steep cliff in the park on July 7 and intentionally pushed him.
