Graham said she decided to confront her husband about her marriage doubts, but she did not know how he would take it. She said the couple climbed down a treacherous slope below a popular spot in the park called The Loop and spoke on a narrow ledge, hundreds of feet above a ravine.

She later told Glacier rangers she had found Johnson's body near The Loop because it was a place he wanted to see before he died.

Yeah, but how long before he died??? Maybe she took him a bit too literally?

“They also showed jurors videos of the couple’s June 29 wedding and their first dance.”

It was that second dance that did him in.

At least she put the poor bastard out of his misery quickly. Most wives slowly and painfully kill their husbands over a number of years.

You don’t ever, EVER underestimate a woman. Especially one you’re married to.

nope, women tend to leave and do the divorce thing pretty fast nowadays. 2/3 of divorces initiated by women. they aren’t the ones sticking with it if they’re unhappy.

She pleaded guilty to second-degree murder just before closing arguments during her December trial, but tried unsuccessfully to retract that plea after prosecutors recommended a prison term of 50 years to life.

Prosecutors dropped a first-degree murder charge and a count of making a false statement to authorities when Graham changed her plea.

******

Montana woman threatened to kill PARENTS weeks before pushing hubby off cliff: prosecutors

Jordan Linn Graham is accused of blindfolding and pushing her husband of eight days, Cody Lee Johnson, off a cliff in Glacier National Park. She apparently had made comments about killing her mother and stepfather five weeks prior to the incident and prosecutors want that admitted into her case.

Prosecutors floated a theory earlier this month that Graham had first blindfolded her husband before shoving him after a piece of cloth was found in a creek near the man’s body. An examination of the cloth turned up “trace evidence and six human hairs” the Missoulian reported.

Let’s assume she killed him exactly this way, then climbed up and ran frantically into the ranger station, saying he had slipped and fallen over the edge.

How in the world would it ever have been prove “beyond a reasonable doubt” that she had indeed murdered him?

It ppears to have been her clumsy lies that tripped her up. If she’d (mostly) just told the truth she’d probably have gottenaway with it.

Fortunately she wasn’t capable of maintaining a facade.

IMO she should be hanged for premeditated murder.

"underestimate"

My wife, like many women, loves to read murder mysteries. One after the other. One time I asked her he she was looking for the perfect murder. She told me not to worry, because if she had wanted to murder someone, she would have murdered her first husband. Then she smiled at me.

I am her second husband. Her first was a little on the crazy side. She’s still somewhat afraid of him. I had to show her how to load my handgun and how to hold it. If he ever shows up at our house and tried to get in, he’s in for a very rude surprise.
