Graham Trial Day 3

Posted: Updated:

Prosecutors used the testimony of 17witnesses, And several pieces of new evidence on day three of the Jordan Graham trial to try to make their case that the 22-year old newlywed planned the murder of her husband, 25-year-old Cody Johnson.

A string of law enforcement officers took the stand to describe the scene of the crime, their recovery of Johnson's body, and evidence. Flathead County Coroner, Richard Sine says he found a piece of black cloth closer to Johnson's body than his shoe. Prosecutors are trying to prove it was a blindfold.

Sine and friends of Graham testified, and a picture was shown, proving Johnson was not wearing his wedding ring at the time of his death. But Graham insisted in several statements to law enforcement he was.

For the first time, the jury heard Graham admit to pushing her husband off the cliff. Attorneys played two audio recordings of Graham describing the incident to FBI agent Stacey Smiedala.  Defense attorneys drilled Smiedala on how and why he failed to record Graham's very first confession.

Smiedala says Graham finally confessed to pushing Cody off the cliff after he confronted her with a security camera picture of her entering the park with Johnson on the night of his death.  During the recording, Graham once again insisted her husband was wearing his wedding ring in his final moments saying "I wouldn't let him take it off."
