    IIRC, it was something to do with Martha and his brother, a jealousy thing. At least I think that is what Mark Fuhrman thought. moo

    Kennedy cousin denied parole in 1975 slaying

    SUFFIELD, Conn. -- Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel was denied a bid for freedom Wednesday at his first parole hearing since he was convicted a decade ago of killing his neighbor in 1975.

    Skakel, who proclaimed his innocence at the hearing, nodded and patted his attorney on the back after the three-person state parole board read the unanimous decision. He will next be eligible for parole in 2017.

    Parole boards like it when you show remorse.

    Another chunk of time where the Moxley family can relax again.

    Thank goodness! Skakel had 20+ years of undeserved freedom before he went to prison. I am so happy for the Martha Moxley's family; her mother seems to be such a gracious lady.

    I hadn't seen this thread previously and would have posted about the made-for-TV movie, "Murder In Greenwich", that is airing on LMN right now. It started at 8:00. I've seen the film and can recommend it as worthwhile viewing. I'm sure that it will be on LMN again as they tend to show movies several times after they premiere. Christopher Meloni (Elliot Stabler on L&A: SVU) portrays Mark Fuhrman.

    Seeing on CNN that skakel's conviction is being thrown out. I'm upset about that.

    HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel was granted a new trial on Wednesday by a Connecticut judge who ruled his attorney failed to adequately represent him when he was convicted in 2002 of killing his neighbor in 1975.

    The ruling by Judge Thomas Bishop marked a dramatic reversal after years of unsuccessful appeals by Skakel, the 52-year-old nephew of Robert F. Kennedy's widow, Ethel Kennedy. Skakel is serving 20 years to life.

    Bridgeport State's Attorney John Smriga said prosecutors will appeal the decision.

    Michael Skakel Granted New Trial in the Death of Martha Moxley

    It's True. Defense attorney Mickey Sherman must be celebrating tonight.

    Sherman has said this is the only case he can't talk about because it upsets him so much. He has said Skakel was railroaded and wrongly convicted.

    Skakel was convicted of a crime police say he committed as a teenager. The murder of Martha Moxley.

    I decided to put this discussion here since it looks like Skakel is awaiting trial once again. Unless the state of CT can get the ruling reversed. Have no idea if that is even feasible.
