Barry Beach Supporters Rally at Courthouse Lawn

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

Supporters of Barry Beach, the man convicted of murdering 17-year-old Kim Nees in 1979, rallied Saturday at the Yellowstone County Courthouse Lawn.

In May, Beach was taken back to Montana State Prison after 18 months of freedom. Beach's lawyer argued the justices applied a new standard of review in the case, and completely discarded a district court judge's findings that gave beach a chance for a retrial.

Saturday, supporters from all around the region came to the courthouse to hopefully get the attention of lawmakers.

"The goal of this is to get the word out that Barry Beach and Kim Nees have not been served. That's what we really want. We want the facts out there, we want people to know the facts in this case," said Sue Searcy, a supporter of Barry Beach.

Searcy says this is the first of a series of rallies for Barry Beach.
