Beach Talks About New Evidence

DEER LODGE -

It could be just a matter of days before we know if the Montana Supreme Court will re-consider it's decision to send Barry Beach back to prison.

On May 14th the Supreme Court issued a ruling reversing a District Court judge's decision to grant the convicted killer a new trial. Days later Beach's attorneys asked the Supreme Court to reconsider its decision. As the prosecutors, the attorney general's office has a chance to respond. They filed that response Thursday, saying the Supreme Court filed a "factually detailed and legally correct opinion" and should not reconsider their decision to put Beach back behind bars.

The assistant for the Chief Justice of the Montana Supreme Court says they expect the court to take up the petition in the next few weeks.

Beach spoke to ABC FOX MONTANA's Sarah Gravlee Thursday. He said he's hopeful the state Supreme Court will reconsider it's decision the put him behind bars.

He said in the last year and a half his legal team has discovered even more evidence they'd really like a jury to see.

"During my year and a half on the street we've had two more witnesses come forward. We actually got the towel, the bloody towel, the FBI claims that towel is unequivocally attached to this case. We've done DNA on that towel. It is not the victim's and it is not mine," Beach said. "Centurion Ministries didn't stop. Centurion Ministries will never stop. We were preparing for a new trial. That DNA is not mine. "

Beach has been fighting for his freedom for the last three decades and said he knows he'll be able to walk free again. We'll hear much more from him tonight on the FOX MONTANA NEWS @ NINE.
