Montana bride accused of murder to be released

A federal court ruled Thursday that a newlywed Montana bride accused of pushing her husband off a cliff to his death will be released from custody as she awaits her trial.

It is not clear at this time how much money Jordan Linn Graham will have to post to be released on bond or what conditions her bond will require. An order imposing conditions of her release will be filed separately. Graham has not yet been released from custody.

“Because the government concedes that Graham does not pose a risk of flight, and has not met its burden of proving by clear and convincing evidence that no condition or combination of conditions will reasonably assure the safety of the community, the court concludes that Graham must be released,” reads the order from Judge Jeremiah Lynch.Graham appeared in the U.S. District Court of Montana in Missoula, Montana, on Wednesday for her detention hearing for allegedly pushing her husband, Cody L. Johnson, off a cliff in July on a hiking trail in Glacier National Park. The case is being heard in federal court, because the park is under federal jurisdiction.

Graham is facing a second-degree murder charge and a potential sentence of life in prison if convicted.

Cameron Fredrickson, a groomsman in the couple’s wedding, did not respond favorably to the news that Graham will be released, “She openly admitted that she took someone’s life. She’s done nothing but lie. But you’re going to let her go home with her family and let her relax like it’s no big deal? Are you kidding?”…

    “Because the government concedes that Graham does not pose a risk of flight, and has not met its burden of proving by clear and convincing evidence that no condition or combination of conditions will reasonably assure the safety of the community, the court concludes that Graham must be released,”

    what does this mean in laymans terms? that nothing can be done to assure the public is safe from her? did anyone else get that out of the above quote?

    come on people!!

    no matter what, she admitted she killed someone she loved enough to have recently married, supposedly in the honeymoon phase (the most loving, IMO) of their relationship after covering it up for approx 2 months. so lets release her?!? out of her own mouth, she said she did it!! what else do you need? keep a killer behind bars. i dont care if it was a lovers spat, that actually makes it WORSE! she loved him! what if someone she didnt know ticked her off? push them in front of a bus instead of off a cliff??

    i am so saddened by the state of the world these days, i could X.
    end of rant, sorry guys

    “The attorney representing a Kalispell newlywed accused of killing her husband by pushing him off a cliff at Glacier National Park says the death was an accident.

    Michael Donahoe also told U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy on Friday that 22-year-old Jordan Linn Graham was acting in self-defense. Eek!
