Graham Update: Jury Selection Begins

Posted: Updated:

Jurors were sworn in, witnesses were called and attorneys presented their opening statements in day one of the Jordan Graham murder trial.

Attorneys wasted no time trying to prove Graham's guilt or innocence as Judge Donald Molloy says the murder trial should be over by Friday.

Both parties opening statements included parts of the story that both sides agree on: Graham had second thoughts about her new marriage to 25-year-old Cody Johnson. The couple traveled to Glacier Park on July 7th, where Graham pushed Johnson to his death, then Graham lied about what happened to friends, family, and law enforcement.

But the difference U.S. district attorneys and Graham's defense team are trying to convince the jury, is of the motive behind Johnson's death.

Following the statements, prosecutors called the first witnesses, friends of Johnson and Graham's matron of honor who also spoke of the pressure and depression Graham expressed in connection with the sexual part of her marriage.
