MISSOULA, Mont. – A federal judge has ordered a Montana newlywed to be released from jail on her own recognizance while awaiting a murder trial in the death of her husband in Glacier National Park.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeremiah Lynch said Thursday that Jordan Linn Graham, 22, of Kalispell did not pose a flight risk because of her strong community ties and did not appear to be a danger to others.

Graham allegedly pushed Cody Lee Johnson, 25, face-first off a cliff to his death in the national park on July 7 after the two argued. Earlier that day, prosecutors claim Graham told a friend she was having doubts about the couple’s 8-day-old marriage.

Prosecutors asked the court to reverse Graham's release, saying she poses a safety risk and has repeatedly lied to investigators.

Oh, sure. She's not a danger to anyone else. The only one she needed to kill is already dead. So, what could go wrong, right? She's obviously not crazy or anything like that. /s

Hey. Maybe she'll use her freedom wisely and throw herself off a cliff. That would save the taxpayers of Montana the expense of housing and feeding her murdering @ss for the rest of her life. not /s

Sign #1 that you may have chosen the wrong woman to be your wife.

Actually sign # 1 was others telling him before he said “I do” not to do it.

I bet this chick has crazy eyes.

Well hopefully this will lead to a ban of all cliffs. We need to introduce legislation that will put cliff locks on all cliffs and have a maximum height limit on all cliffs.

Crazy in da head, crazy in da bed.

Head on a swivel man!

This guy would have been the type who take their woman to the gun store and buy her a pistol and ammo, teach her to shoot at the local gun range, and then face terror for the rest of their days.

If the husband had pushed the wife off the cliff, would he be released on his own recognizance?

Well she said she only wanted a wedding, she did not want a marriage! So, she had the wedding! From now on, as long as you just shack up with her, no problemo! Wonder if she’ll apply for widow’s benefits? /SARCASM

I guess he'd served his purpose.

What if she goes bar hopping? Would you want to be the guy she meets at the pub? By releasing her the judge had put the public in danger.

Looking for a photo, CNN has a clip. She lied to the police, and she was on the phone during the funeral.

The the combination of the two should be enough be enough not to release her on her own recognizance

My son’s friends were telling him not to do it. At the bachelor party they were all trying to get up the nerve to sit him down and persuade him that he was making a big mistake. The best man said no, it was too late. Their reason wasn’t that she was crazy, though. They just think that his wife is way too materialistic.

"She’d been telling people she knew she never wanted to be married, she just wanted to have a wedding, and that’s apparently what they were arguing about."

She just wanted to have a wedding. But then people started laying that whole "husband" and "marriage" trip on her, and it was just too much. The pressure to conform to a hetero-normative social construct, i.e., "traditional marriage" imposed stresses that could only be relieved by pushing the "oppressor" out of the dynamic ... or off a cliff ...

Scene of the crime... sounds like she tried to pull off a little "swimmer" action, but without the family lawyers and wealth that he had to help her out.

She’s a brunette, too. From my experience, it doesn’t get much more mental than them.

What do you call a man out on a date with a brunette?

A hostage.

Released on her own recognizance, no bail required. Must be awesome being a chick. Now all she has to do is pluck a nose hair to make a tear, then tell the court how the guy was scary and mean. That’s why she pushed him over.

by her accounts, she admits pushing him, but it was a reaction to him pushing her...the two were arguing...

this happened in July....she admitted it then....she hasn't run away....if the cops or prosecutor thought she was so dangerous, they would have locked her up then....not 2 months later...

They just happened to be near a cliff and she pushed him so hard that he fell off of it?
