Michael Skakel Denied Parole

A three-person board unanimously decided to deny Michael Skakel parole Wednesday, in what was his first parole hearing. Skakel was convicted in 2002 of killing his neighbor Martha Moxley with a gold club in 1975, when they were both 15. Skakel, a nephew of Robert F. Kennedy’s widow, was sentenced to 20 years to life.
