BILLINGS -

Convicted killer Barry Beach has bonded out of the Yellowstone County jail.

According to Beach’s attorney, Tim Baldwin, Beach was released following a Billings City Court hearing on Monday.

The City of Billings has filed a complaint against Beach for allegedly violating a restraining order against him.

The order of protection was granted to a woman on October 28.

On Sunday, November 6, the complainant alleged that Beach had failed to stay at least 300 feet away from from her.

"The defendant has exercised very poor judgment by violating the restraining order while also wearing a GPS monitoring system imposed by the DOC from a prior sanction," Beach's parole officer stated in the court document.

Beach's attorney says the restraining order is about a child custody parenting issue that will be worked out in District Court.

Beach told MTN News earlier this month that a DNA test confirmed he is the father of the woman's son.

Beach’s attorney said Beach and the woman will meet in court to discuss a parenting plan.

Baldwin said Beach will appear in City Court again in December.

Baldwin said there has been no motion filed to revoke the suspension of Beach’s sentence based on his conduct. 

In a court appearance last week, Beach’s probation officer said Beach had “exercised very poor judgment by violating the restraining order while also wearing a GPS monitoring system.”

Beach was convicted of deliberate homicide in 1984 for the 1979 killing of teen Kimberly Nees in Poplar.

He was granted clemency by Gov. Steve Bullock last November after spending more than 30 years in prison.
