Jordan Graham pushed her husband while they were at Glacier National Park and he fell off a cliff. Her lawyers say she pushed him in self defense and that his death was an accident. The prosecution argues it was murder. One problem for the defense is that initially, Graham lied about what happened and went to pretty dramatic lengths to cover her tracks. Those lies took center stage in court today. Kyung Lah has the latest, and explains what was happening when Graham started wiping away tears.
