GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - Barry Beach says the woman who sought a restraining order against him is the mother of a 4-year-old boy he recently learned was his.

The woman was granted a temporary restraining order last week after reporting that Beach was stalking her after she refused to resume the romantic relationship they had when he was temporarily released from prison in 2011.

Beach tells the Great Falls Tribune (gftrib.com/2fgT0vN) that he is trying to obtain visitation rights and the restraining order was the woman’s efforts to keep him away from the boy. A Nov. 14 hearing is set in Yellowstone County Justice Court to determine if the order should be made permanent.

Beach was released from prison in 2011 after a judge ordered a new trial in the 1979 murder of Kim Nees of Poplar. However, the Supreme Court reversed the order and Beach was returned to prison.

Beach was granted clemency and released on probation last year.
