Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel was granted bail Thursday and is expected to be released from prison while prosecutors in Connecticut appeal a ruling giving him a new trial in the 1975 slaying of neighbor Martha Moxley.
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.
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.
"He ought to serve his punishment," Mrs. Moxley, 81, said this week as the release was pending. "There's no doubt in my mind that he did it. A little justice for Martha is not asking a lot."
