RFK Jr. appears on Good Day CT to talk about book, 1975 Skakel murder case

HARTFORD - A new book from Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is being discussed this morning on Good Day CT.

Kennedy's book is stoking the intrigue over the widely chronicled murder that his cousin, Michael Skakel, has been accused of carrying out with a golf club in 1975.

Kennedy claims  Skakel is innocent, and his book points a finger at other people he says could have bludgeoned the girl to death. Prosecutors and the family of the victim said the claims at the heart of Kennedy’s book already have been aired in court.

Skakel was convicted in 2002 of murdering his neighbor, Martha Moxley, when they were both 15. A judge in 2013 ordered a new trial after finding that a defense attorney failed to adequately represent Skakel.
