MISSOULA, Mont. - Friends of a Montana woman on trial for the death of her new husband say she showed little emotion when she located his body in Glacier National Park days after his disappearance.

Cecilia Lewellen said Tuesday that Graham climbed a steep slope below the roadway and called out that she spotted the body in a ravine.

Lewellen says after that, Graham didn't really show any emotion.

Another friend, Hannah Sherrill, says Graham remarked that now a funeral could be held and "the cops can be out of it."

Prosecutors say Graham knew where the body was since Johnson disappeared July 7 because she deliberately pushed him during an argument.

Graham has pleaded not guilty to murder charges and lying to authorities for originally saying Johnson had driven off with friends.
