Not much to go on in the story regarding evidence but I can see she did not phone the authorities after her husbands so called "Fall" off the cliff. She texted a gf that night and told her she was going to talk to her husband about having second thoughts.
It is obvious LE has some evidence as she is being charged.

Rest in Peace

A Montana woman pleaded not guilty to murder and other charges Friday, three months after she allegedly pushed her newlywed husband off a cliff as the hiked through a national park.

Jordan Linn Graham was arraigned Friday in a U.S. District Court in Missoula, Montana, about 130 miles south of where her newlywed husband Cody Johnson fell to his death on July 7.

A federal grand jury on Thursday charged Graham with first- and second-degree murder and making false statements.

Graham states that she told police she decided to travel with Johnson to the hiking trail the evening of July 7 and an argument ensued.

"Graham stated their argument intensified. At one point in time during their arguing, Graham turned and began to walk away. She stated Johnson grabbed her by the arm," reads the affidavit.


Graham said she then turned around and removed his hand.

"Graham stated she could have just walked away, but due to her anger, she pushed Johnson with both hands in the back and as a result, he fell face first off the cliff," according to the affidavit.

Michael Donahoe, Graham's lawyer, said last month that Johnson pinned his wife down at one point during their argument. The final part of their fight -- ending with Johnson falling off the cliff -- was "all in one motion, the grabbing and pushing," according to Donahoe.

Jordan was not married more than 8 days when she pushed her husband off a cliff. It appeared she was UNHAPPY and they argued. She has pleaded not guilty and has changed her story a few times.
She is being charged w/ first and second degree murder.
I hope she gets her just due.

Fair Use
Tears at trial of Montana newlywed accused of pushing husband off cliff
By Tracy Connor, Staff Writer, NBC News

Emotions ran high Tuesday at the trial of a Montana woman charged with pushing her husband off a cliff eight days after their wedding, with her teenage brother breaking down in tears on the stand.

Jordan Linn Graham, 22, also wept as she listened to 16-year-old Michael Rutledge testify that he was angry his sister had lied about the disappearance of her groom, Cody Johnson.

Graham is charged with first-degree and second-degree murder in the death of Johnson, who plunged 200 feet off a cliff in Glacier National Park on July 7, a week after the couple tied the knot. She has pleaded not guilty.

The new bride told friends, family and police that she saw Johnson, 25, drive off with a friend. She allegedly created a dummy email account to send a message to herself, signed Tony, saying he had fallen to his death while hiking.


The truth came out nine days later when Graham admitted to cops that she went with Johnson to the park and they argued. She claims she pushed him in self-defense after he grabbed her arm and that he lost his balance on a narrow ledge and fell.

Federal prosecutors argue she meant to kill him and had confided in text messages to a friend, Kimberly Martinez, that she was unhappy in their marriage.

A federal judge accepted a guilty plea Thursday from a Montana newlywed after she reached a surprise plea agreement and said she pushed her husband from a cliff in Glacier National Park.

The development came before a jury was set to begin considering the case against 22-year-old Jordan Graham.

In exchange for the plea to second-degree murder, prosecutors agreed to drop a first-degree murder charge and a count of making a false statement to authorities.

First-degree murder means a crime is premeditated.

Graham could face a maximum sentence of life in prison on March 27.

In accepting the plea, District Judge Donald Molloy told Graham to recount exactly what happened the night of July 7 when her husband Cody Johnson, 25, fell to his death in the park.

Graham said she told Johnson that she wasn't happy and wasn't feeling like she should after getting married. She said they argued and at one point he grabbed her by the arm. She said she brushed his hand away and pushed him, with one hand on his arm and one on his back.

"I wasn't thinking about where we were ... I just pushed," she told the judge.

She said she then drove back to Kalispell without calling for help because she was so afraid she did not know what to do.
