Jury Hears Montana Bride Lie About Husband's Fall Off Cliff

The defense and prosecution agree on this much: Jordan Linn Graham pushed her husband of eight days, and he fell off a cliff to his death in Glacier National Park in Montana.

In day two of the trial, the jury saw and heard Graham lying to police in two extensive taped interviews, CNN's Kyung Lah reports.

In the first video, Graham was matter of fact and unemotional as she told police that her husband Cody Johnson took off from home in a dark car with Washington plates.

Johnson had been missing for two days and police were searching for him.

The reality is Graham knew her new husband of just eight days was already dead at the bottom of a sheer cliff because she watched him fall.

The very next day, police videotaped Graham again.  She went to police because she received an email, dated July 10th, three days after her husband's death.

The email came from a mysterious friend named "Tony."  It reads, "Hello Jordan. my name is Tony. There is no bother in looking for Cody anymore. He is gone."

The email claims Johnson died during that car trip.

But Detective Cory Clarke knew something was fishy about Graham's story.

On the stand, Clarke said the email traced back to a computer at Graham's father's home and that it was a fake email created to support Graham's story to police.
