BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A judge will decide whether to revoke a suspended sentence for a man convicted in a woman’s death.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/2kcMZ4H) Barry Beach and his attorney said Friday that he did not violate his probation.

Beach was convicted in the 1979 death of 17-year-ld Kim Nees.

He served over 30 years in prison before Gov. Steve Bullock granted him clemency in November 2015.

Beach is now suspected of violating a temporary protection order.



Justice Department spokesman Eric Sell said the state will recommend that Beach go back to prison if his probation is revoked.

Beach’s next court appearance is set for late February.
