Defense: Prosecutors Looking At Blindfold Theory In Newlywed Case

KALISPELL, Mont. (UPI) — Attorneys for a Montana woman accused of killing her new husband say prosecutors are suggesting she may have blindfolded him before pushing him off a cliff.

Court documents filed by Jordan Graham’s attorney said “the government now believes Jordan placed a blindfold on Cody before pushing him off the ledge,” ABC News reported.

Graham, 22, is scheduled to go on trial in December on a charge of first degree murder in the death of Cody Johnson in Glacier National Park in July. Graham maintains her husband accidentally fell off a cliff to his death. Prosecutors allege that she pushed him.

In a 48-page brief, defense attorneys argue if the couple was “arguing intensely on the ledge it hardly seems plausible that the argument would cease abruptly so Jordan could apply a blindfold,” KZBK-TV in Bozeman reported.

Defense attorneys said they want to know if the “blindfold theory” was given to the grand jury, KZBK reported.

A cloth was found on a shoal of the river near where Johnson’s body was found and prosecutors are awaiting DNA results on the material, the defense said.
