BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A convicted murderer who was granted clemency last November has been arrested for allegedly violating conditions of his probation.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://goo.gl/AVSeH3 ) Barry Beach was booked into the Yellowstone County jail Wednesday afternoon. Sheriff Mike Linder says he does not know the specifics of the alleged violation.

Beach was released from prison in 2011 after a judge ordered a new trial in the 1979 murder of Kim Nees, of Poplar. But the Supreme Court reversed the order, and Beach was returned to prison. He was granted clemency and released again last year.

In early October, Beach had his probation restrictions increased after a woman accused him of propositioning her 12-year-old daughter in January. No charges were filed.

The new terms included wearing a GPS device, travel restrictions, an evening curfew and visitor approval to his home.
