Woman in newlywed murder case won’t testify
MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — Defense attorneys say a Montana woman accused of killing her new husband won’t testify in her defense.
Attorneys for Jordan Graham instead attempted Thursday to chip away at the prosecution’s image of her as a cold, dispassionate woman and the claim that she led Cody Johnson to a dangerous precipice in Glacier National Park and pushed him to his death.
Graham’s defense team showed photos of a smiling bride getting her hair done, putting on her borrowed dress and recording a song she commissioned for their first dance at the June 29 wedding.
Both sides rested their cases Thursday after 3½ days of testimony. The case will be turned over to the jury after closing arguments.
