MISSOULA, Mont. -

A Kalispell newlywed who pushed her husband off a cliff has been moved to a federal prison in Alabama.

According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons website Jordan Linn Graham is serving her sentence at a low security Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) in Aliceville, Alabama.

U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy sentenced Graham to just over 30 years in prison in March, after she pleaded guilty to second degree murder.

Graham confessed to pushing her husband Cody Lee Johnson off a cliff in Glacier National Park. The two had been married just eight days when they got into an argument last July, and Graham shoved Johnson from a ledge near The Loop trail in the park.

The Bureau of Prisons lists Graham's release date as June 6, 2040 - which comes out to be just over 26 years. If you tack on the five years of supervised release it comes out to be about 31 years.

Graham's attorneys have filed an document saying they intend to appeal the sentence.
