MISSOULA, Mont. -

The deadline is here and no plea deal has been filed in the case of a Kalispell newlywed accused of killing her husband.

Wednesday was the last day for the parties to reach an agreement in the case where Jordan Linn Graham faces first- and second-degree murder charges and a third charge for lying to authorities.

Federal prosecutors say Graham intentionally pushed her husband Cody Lee Johnson off a cliff in Glacier National Park in July. The couple had been married just eight days.

A trial is scheduled to start December 9.
