    Do ylu think he will be retried? I sort of think they won’t. I feel awful for Martha’s family.

    I just have a feeling that he is not going back to jail-didn’t they say today that he’s going to be retried? I bet he gets acquitted this time (but I do think he did it). I think that money does talk, as Borndem says, and there ae people out there who think he’s served enough time-and you only need one of them on a jury.

    My mistake-they voted to overturn his conviction, not to retry him

    Skakel conviction vacated
    ..he admitted to being at the scene that night!
    ..golf club used to murder was from the Skakel's
    ..he said he remembered a friend who left his house --after the party that left to go watch Monty Python had left his house--no alibi

    he really like Moxley---he was not going to go from that house--he knew his brother and Martha were ''close''
    he saw those 2 get intimate and ----got pissed....he was drunk and he saw his brother with Martha---just like Mark Fuhrman said

    this makes the most sense--most probable --along with the other evidence
    these judges screwed up

    Over the years, I've read about Martha's murder and followed Skakel's case. Politics aside and considering the timeline and all the evidence, it seems the killer was someone who had been in the Skakel house that night.

    Someone who knew where the golf clubs were located, most likely a Skakel family member.

    It would be very difficult for some stranger to the area to come in and steal the club, especially at that hour

    Your last paragraph tells the story-it must have been a resident of that house. Michael Skakel’s defense just tries to muddy the waters, by using the “soddit” defense (“some other dude did it”). Especially disturbing is the suggestion that his brother did it, and let Michael take the blame. What kind of people are they-no matter which one of them might have done it?
