A judge is still deciding whether to accept the deal.
 
Under the plea agreement, prosecutors would drop charges of first-degree murder and making a false statement. Graham would face a maximum sentence of life in prison.
 
No sentencing date has been scheduled.
 
Prosecutors had alleged Graham was having second thoughts about her 8-day-old marriage to 25-year-old Cody Johnson when she lured him to a steep cliff in the park on July 7 and intentionally pushed him.
