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.
