A Montana bride accused of killing her new husband by pushing him off a cliff has agreed to plead guilty to second-degree murder.
Jordan Graham, 22, pushed Cody Johnson - her husband of eight days - off a cliff at Glacier National Park in July.
Federal prosecutors claimed Graham deliberately shoved her husband off a rock ledge while the couple was hiking a steep trail at Glacier and then lied to investigators and tried to cover up the crime.
However, she claims the death was an accident that happened during a row in which Johnson grabbed his wife's arm and jacket and she pulled away even as she pushed him.
As a result of the plea, prosecutors have agreed to drop charges of first-degree murder and making false statements.
