(The Independent) An American woman has been charged with murdering her husband by pushing him off a cliff just a week after they got married.

Jordan Linn Graham, 22, appeared in court in Montana on Monday, accused of the second-degree murder of her husband Cody Lee Johnson, while they hiking in Glacier National Park in July. If convicted, she faces life in prison.

Court documents suggest that Graham told a friend she had been having second thoughts about the marriage – at around the same time he went missing. His mangled body was found five days later below The Loop, a well-known outlook in the park.
