Newlywed on trial: 'I pushed him and I took off'

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - A Montana woman on trial for killing her newlywed husband at Glacier National Park told the FBI "I pushed him and I took off."

The statement by 22-year-old Jordan Graham was heard on Wednesday, the third day of her trial. She is charged with first-degree murder and second-degree murder in the July 7 death of Cody Johnson, 25.

Flathead County Deputy Coroner Richard Sine testified that Johnson had an 8-inch fracture on his forehead and was not wearing a wedding ring when his body was found.

Graham's statement was in a recording made by an FBI agent in Kalispell on July 16.

Graham has said she and Johnson argued in the park, and he accidentally fell when she tried to remove his hand from her arm.
