Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel says he's spending time with family as he awaits retrial

Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel says he's spending as much time as he can with family as he awaits a new trial in his murder case.

Skakel arrived Wednesday at Stamford Superior Court for a hearing on a motion seeking to keep the government from using certain evidence at his trial.

Asked if he was spending time with his family, Skakel said, "much as I can." Asked if he was enjoying his time out of prison, he said, "I wouldn't say enjoying."

Skakel, the nephew of Robert F. Kennedy's widow, Ethel, was freed from prison last year after a judge ruled his trial attorney failed to adequately represent him in 2002 when he was convicted of fatally bludgeoning Martha Moxley in Greenwich when they were both 15.
