One Week Before Graham Sentencing

Posted: Updated:

She is the bride who gained national attention after pleading guilty to pushing her newlywed husband off a cliff at Glacier National Park, and now we're eight days away from her sentencing. Court documents filed over the last couple of days show just how much prison time the Kalispell bride could be facing and it ranges from 10 years to life in prison.

22-year-old Jordan Graham will soon find out how many years of her life she will serve behind bars after she pleaded guilty to murdering her husband, Cody Johnson, in December. 

Graham's defense team is asking for a sentence of ten years, saying the crime was an accident in the heat of an argument.  Court documents filed by U.S. prosecutors, Kris McLean and Zeno Baucus, show they are asking Judge Donald Molloy to sentence Graham to life in prison or at least 50 years.     

To make their case for this sentence, prosecutors included emotional letters from friends and family of both Johnson and Graham.  Some of the letters come from friends of Cody Johnson,  telling Judge Molloy of the pain Cody's mother, Sherry, is going through losing her only son and urging him to keep Graham in jail for a long, yet unspecified, amount of time.     

Other, more chilling letters, come from the Blasdel family who have known Graham since she was a small child, and come outright asking Judge Molloy to sentence Graham to life in prison as they fear she will kill again. In a letter from Brad Blasdel, a friend of Graham's mother who took the stand to testify against Jordan in the trial, tells the judge bluntly, "if she gets out she will do it again, now that she has whetted her appetite. She will kill again if given the chance. An eye for eye. She took Cody's life with premeditation and malice now she must give hers."
