Missoula - Defence attorneys say a Montana woman accused of killing her new husband by pushing him off a cliff won't testify in her Defence.

Attorneys for Jordan Graham instead attempted on Thursday to chip away at the prosecution's image of her as a cold, dispassionate woman and the claim that she led Cody Johnson to a dangerous precipice in Glacier National Park and pushed him to his death.

Graham's Defence team showed photos of a smiling bride getting her hair done, putting on her borrowed dress and recording a song she commissioned for their first dance at the June 29 wedding.

Both sides rested their cases on Thursday after 3½ days of testimony. The case will be turned over to the jury after closing arguments. - Sapa-AP
