Missoula, MT -

 U.S. attorneys prosecuting a Kalispell woman charged with pushing her new husband off a cliff in Glacier National Park say they want to present evidence that she lied about being abused by former boyfriends and that she told someone in June that she could kill her parents.

Documents filed Monday in the case against 22-year-old Jordan Linn Graham offer reasons why jurors should be allowed to hear that evidence. Graham is charged with first-degree murder in the July 7 death of Cody Lee Johnson. Her trial is set for Dec. 9.

Graham's attorneys have said she pushed Johnson in self-defense.

Documents filed by Graham's attorneys this week indicate plea negotiations stalled on Nov. 20. Attorney Michael Donahoe is seeking a settlement conference.
