A newly-wed bride has pleaded guilty to pushing her husband off a cliff and killing him eight days after their wedding, during an argument over her having second thoughts about being married, the Independent (British) website reports today (December 13, 2013).
Jordan Graham, 22, had previously denied murder, claiming that the death had been an accident, after first denying that she had even been present when he died.
In accepting the last-minute guilty plea, US District Judge Donald Molloy told Graham she must recount what happened when her husband Cody Johnson, 25, fell to his death in Glacier National Park, Montana last July.
In exchange for the last-minute guilty plea to second-degree murder, prosecutors agreed to drop a first-degree murder charge and a count of making a false statement to authorities. Graham could face a maximum sentence of life in prison when she is sentenced on March 27, 2014.
