Barry Beach was taken to the Yellowstone County Detention Facility on Wednesday afternoon, according to the Yellowstone County Sheriff.
"I was notified he was coming in and was going to be in around 5 o'clock and brought in by Probation and Parole," Yellowstone County Sheriff Mike Linder said.
Linder said he did not know the reason Beach was brought to the jail.
Sgt. Rich Peters at the Yellowstone County Detention Facility said that Beach was jailed for violating of the terms of his release.
In October, a woman was granted a temporary order of protection against Beach in Yellowstone County after she alleged she was being stalked by him.

A hearing on whether to continue the order has been set for Nov. 14 before Justice of the Peace Pedro Hernandez.
Beach said the woman who sought the order of protection against him is the mother of a 4-year-old boy he recently learned was his.
Beach said he was trying to obtain visitation rights and the restraining order was the woman's effort to keep him away from the boy.
Earlier in October increased restrictions were placed on Beach's release. The new terms included wearing a GPS device, travel restrictions, an evening curfew and approval of visitors to his home.
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.
