latest on the montana newly wed charged with killing her husband by pushing him off a cliff. Learning more about what she was doing when the search was going on for her missing husband. Ryan owens has the story. Reporter: This morning, federal prosecutors are busy building a case against montana newly wed jordan graham. Saying she pushed her new husband, cody johnson, face first over a cliff in glacier national pack just eight days after their dance to this song. ♪ Everyone wants a safe place ♪ Reporter: One of the friends said the young bride says she wants the body found and the cops out of it. In her mind, the body is found, determined an accident, case is closed, she's home free. Reporter: Prosecutors say she pushed him because she regretted marrying man she didn't love. Her confession came only after she concocted lie after lie to cover her tracks. Investigators say she first told them her husband disappeared after going on a joyride with friends. These new documents include an e-mail addressed to the new bride from someone nameded tony. Sent three days after cody went missing. I don't know who the guys were but they took off. Call off the missing person report. Cody is gone for sure. Investigators say that e-mail was part of her fraud. Sent to herself from a computer registered to her own father. She's pleaded not guilty. Next month, a jury is set to decide if she's a grieving widow who lied out of fear or a calculating killer whose lies finally caught up to her. For "good morning america," ryan owens, abc news, dallas. Let's get more on this with dan abrams, our chief legal affairs reporter. These documents hurt her case. Before, all we knew, she was saying the last thing she knew, she saw him getting into a car with people she didn't know. That's the last thing we heard. Now to see the documents, about the lengths that she went to to cover this up, makes it that much more problematic for her. This note that she gets from some guy named tony, right, and you read what she says in the note, I mean, it's so absurd. Call off the missing persons report. Cody is gone for sure. Et cetera. If she's the one who created that, all to try to lead the authorities away from it, that just makes the case that much easier for the authorities. This is still about everything that happened after the fact. There is not a lot of evidence saying this is premeditated. I think if she came to the authorities and said, here's what happened. We had been fighting, he had scratched me before, I pushed him. I thing they would have charged her with manslaughter. Not murder. I think this is a kind of case you'll see plea discussions. She would want something like involuntary manslaughter and almost no prison time. The authorities would be demanding voluntary manslaughter, more significant prison time. I have to believe they strike a deal. Now to the frightening new dash cam video.
