Barry Beach Talks Exclusively to KULR-8

BILLINGS -

Barry Beach could be going back to prison. The Montana Supreme Court today said Beach should not be granted a new trial.

Beach was convicted of the 1979 murder of Kimberly Nees. We talked to the Attorney General's office, staff there say they are going through the 93 page ruling and they'll be able to say something at a later time.

Nees' body was found floating in the Poplar River and police say she had been bludgeoned to death. In the case, court documents say Beach confessed to killing Nees to authorities in Louisiana but later he appealed saying the confession was coerced.

During the trial, there was no evident directly linking Beach to the murder. Beach was sentenced to 100 years in prison with no chance of parole and served 28 years.

KULR-8 exclusively talked to Beach on the phone to tell us in his own words what is happening. Barry Beach is shocked and confused by the decision.

    Street Lights Needed

    Streets that run for several blocks, without a single street light. It is a dark reality many residents throughout the Magic City face when the sun goes down. Leo Robinson lives on Monad Rd., east of 24th Street. He said if street lights were placed on Monad, safety for everyone would improve. Terry Smith, City Traffic Engineer, said the city is more than willing to work with anyone, on any street, which lacks street lights.

    Hundreds of Hells Angels are coming to Cody for a national meeting this week. The motorcycle club apparently likes the northwest Wyoming town. They held their world run there in 2006. Police presence is heavy in Cody now.
