Skakel, who has lost a series of appeals over the years and a bid for parole last year, is hoping to get out of prison through a writ of habeas corpus arguing he was deprived of his constitutional right to effective legal representation when Michael Sherman was his attorney.
A Connecticut parole board rejected Skakel’s request following a two-hour hearing Wednesday in which he proclaimed he is innocent.
Moxley’s mother and relatives will reportedly be at the parole hearing in Suffield to fight against Skakel’s release.
During a TV press event this week, Ethel Kennedy spoke her approval of Taylor Swift, who appears to be dating–or at least getting cozy with–her grandson, Conor Kennedy.
Skakel was convicted in 2002 of beating 15-year-old Martha Moxley to death with a golf club in wealthy Greenwich.
