Court summons 150 people for jury pool in Graham case
The U.S. District Court for the District of Montana has summoned 150 people as potential jurors for the case where a Kalispell newlywed is accused of pushing her husband off a cliff.
Jury selection starts Monday, for the case where Jordan Linn Graham is accused of intentionally pushing her husband Cody Lee Johnson off a cliff in Glacier National Park in July. Graham faces first and second degree murder charges as well as a third charge for lying to authorities about Johnson’s disappearance.
The Clerk of Court said 150 people is larger than a typical criminal case. They were pulled from Flathead, Granite, Lake, Lincoln, Mineral, Missoula, Ravalli, and Sanders Counties – those counties make up the Missoula Division of the court. Just 12 people and at least one alternate will be selected to hear the case.
Graham allegedly admitted her involvement in Johnson’s death in July. U.S. attorneys filed the case in September.
