Hearing underway for Kalispell woman accused of pushing husband over cliff

MISSOULA - A detention hearing is underway in Missoula for the Kalispell woman who's accused of killing her husband by pushing him over a cliff at Glacier National Park.

A FBI investigator took the stand Wednesday afternoon to detail the charges against Jordan Linn Graham, 22, who federal prosecutors say pushed Cody Johnson from the cliff on July 7 after the two argued and she told a friend she was having doubts about her new marriage.

Graham's public defender requested the hearing after U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeremiah Lynch ordered Graham detained at her initial appearance Monday, but said he would leave the issue open for a hearing.

Judge Lynch will consider factors such as the safety to the public and to Graham if she is released, and whether she is a flight risk.

We'll have more on this developing story during the 5:30 News on the Montana Television Network.
