Trial begins in newlywed killing case


Those doubts came to a head July 7, when the 25-year-old Johnson fell to his death from a cliff in Glacier National Park while the couple was arguing.

Prosecutors presented jurors with dozens of text messages between Graham and her friend, Kimberly Martinez, that document Graham's emotional spiral from excitement about her wedding to despair about being married.
