Mont. newlywed won’t testify at trial for murdering husband

MISSOULA, Mont. –  Defense attorneys say a Montana newlywed accused of killing her husband by pushing him off a cliff won't testify in her defense.

Attorneys for Jordan Graham instead attempted Thursday to chip away at the prosecution's image of her as a cold, dispassionate woman and the claim that she led Cody Johnson to a dangerous precipice in Glacier National Park before pushing him to his death.

Graham's defense team showed photos of a smiling bride getting her hair done, putting on her borrowed dress and recording a song she commissioned for their first dance at the June 29 wedding.

Both sides rested their case Thursday after 3½ days of testimony. The case will be turned over to the jury after closing arguments
