This week a judge ordered that convicted killer Michael Skakel be granted a new trial in the death of his childhood neighbor back in 1975. Martha Moxley was bludgeoned to death in the posh Belle Haven neighborhood of Greenwich, and more than a quarter century later, Skakel was arrested, stood trial, and was convicted in 2002.
The case has made national news for decades, and the trial was a media circus. This week on Face the State, we are joined by two former prosecutors who worked on the Skakel case, now in private practice. Former Chief State’s Attorney Chris Morano and former assistant state’s attorney Ryan McGuigan both believe Skakel is guilty, but expressed concerns about prosecutors getting a second guilty verdict.
They also have an interesting theory they believe the defense may use.
