Barry Beach turns himself in
Convicted killer Barry Beach turns himself in today at the Yellowstone County Sheriff's Office in Billings.
After spending the last year-and-a-half as a free man, Beach is back in custody following a state Supreme Court decision. The high court ruled a District Court "erred" in deciding Beach should get a new trial. Beach served 28-years in prison for the 1979 murder of Kimberley Nees in Poplar. Now, Beach will serve the remainder of his 100 year prison sentence.
Stelle Ziegler, guardian of Barry Beach: "He was a very productive citizen paying taxes working, doing all the things that you should do, trying to get thirty years of his life back and just to have it all pulled out in such a fast unreal situation is just mind boggling to us."
Centurion Ministries is a nonprofit organization dedicated to freeing people it believes have been unjustly imprisoned for life. The group is teaming up with Beach's attorneys to come up with a plan, to try to free Beach once again.
