Bond hearing set next week in Conn. for Kennedy cousin Skakel as he awaits new trial

A bond hearing has been scheduled for next week for Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel (SKAY'-kul) as he awaits a new trial in the 1975 slaying of neighbor Martha Moxley.

Prosecutor Susann Gill said Wednesday that authorities in Connecticut decided not to appeal a ruling last week that lifted a stay in the case.

The bond hearing for Skakel is scheduled for Nov. 21 in Stamford Superior Court.

A judge ruled last month that Skakel's trial attorney failed to adequately represent him in 2002 when he was convicted in Moxley's golf club bludgeoning. The judge lifted a stay of his ruling last week, saying he didn't believe Skakel should have to stay in prison while the ruling is appealed.
