Friends of a US woman on trial for the death of her new husband showed little emotion when she located his body in a national park days after she told authorities he had driven off with friends and disappeared.

Jordan Graham has pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree murder, second-degree murder and making a false statement to authorities in the death of 25-year-old Cody Johnson.

Graham, 22, and Johnson had been married for eight days when they argued over her doubts about the marriage, prosecutors said.

Graham, her mother, brother and friends drove to the Glacier National Park twice in the days after Johnson, 25, went missing on July 7.

Cecilia Lewellen said 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.
