Skakel Appeal
Michael Skakel, right, looks on as his attorney Hubert Santos speaks during a hearing in Rockville Superior court Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2013, in Vernon, Conn., to determine if Skakel can be released while awaiting a new trial in the 1975 slaying of neighbor Martha Moxley. Judge Thomas Bishop ordered a new trial for Skakel last month, saying his trial attorney, Michael Sherman, failed to adequately represent him in 200. The judge said Skakel cannot be released immediately while he awaits a new trial, but he did lift a stay, which could clear the way for Skakel to seek bail later. (AP Photo/Fred Beckham, Pool)
