Court Looks At Wife In GNP Fall

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL -

The wife of a man found dead in Glacier National Park in July appeared in federal court today to face murder charges in his death.

It is the first time the death has been labeled anything but suspicious and the first time his spouse has been possibly implicated.

Twenty-two-year-old Jordan Linn Graham was in court today on charges of second degree murder for allegedly pushing her husband, Cody Johnson, off a cliff in Glacier National Park.

Cody Lee Johnson's body was found early on July 12, temporarily closing the Going to the Sun Road.

Charging documents say Graham was the first to report the death and a park ranger told her he thought it was strange she found the body. Documents say Graham told the ranger, "it was a place Cody wanted to see before he died."

Documents say Graham's story changed at different parts of the interview, but most recently she told investigators she and her new husband had been arguing July 7 as the couple entered the Loop Trail area in the park. In the documents, Graham claims she pushed Johnson back while trying to escape his grasp, causing him to fall off the cliff.

Second degree murder could mean life behind bars.

Assistant US Attorney for the district of Montana, Victoria Francis, says Wednesday is the earliest Graham could seen in court again.

An anonymous Twitter account under the handle @whokilledcody has already published more than a hundred tweets since Johnson's body was found.

The writer has posted news articles and asked for anyone with information to step forward.
