MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - A U.S. District judge has upheld the release of a Montana newlywed accused of killing her husband by pushing him off a cliff at Glacier National Park.
The Missoulian reports that Judge Donald Molloy determined Friday that 22-year-old Jordan Linn Graham does not pose a flight risk.
Molloy said during a brief hearing that restrictions placed on Graham's release address concerns that she poses a risk to the community or herself.
Authorities say Graham has admitted to shoving Cody Lee Johnson, 25, off a cliff in Glacier on the night of July 7 during an argument.
She was released on her own recognizance Thursday and ordered into home detention at her parent's house in Kalispell.
Prosecutors wanted her jailed pending a trial for second degree murder.
