Jury Selected, Opening Statement Begin Graham Murder Trial

MISSOULA -

The jury is selected and opening statements are scheduled to begin in a federal courtroom Monday afternoon in the trial of a Kalispell woman, who is accused of pushing her husband off a cliff to his death in Glacier National Park.

Jordan Graham, 22, is charged with first degree murder, second degree murder, and making a false statement in the July 7th death of Cody Johnson, 25. The couple had been married for eight days.

She pleaded not guilty to all charges on October 4.

U.S. District Court Judge Donald Molloy, who is presiding over the trial, said that he wants the trial to resume by Friday because he has another trial slated to begin in Billings next Monday.

Federal prosecutors will attempt to convince jurors that Graham deliberately pushed Johnson to his death, while Graham's lawyers will ask jurors to believe that she was only trying to remove his hand from her arm when he fell.
