RFK Jr. Says Shamed Cousin Is 'Elated' After Murder Conviction Is Reversed Again

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s shamed cousin, Michael Skakel is off the hook — again.

This Tuesday on Today, the American attorney, 64, spoke of his relative's on-again-off-again murder conviction, claiming the Connecticut Supreme Court had essentially ruled it an "exoneration."

RFK Jr. added that Skakel was "elated" with the court's decision after decades of dealing with the mysterious case.

As readers know, Skakel was convicted in 2002, after allegedly beating neighbor Martha Moxley to death with a golf club in 1975. In 2013, he was freed on $1.2 million bail when a court reversed his conviction.

A higher court in Connecticut reinstated his murder conviction just this 2016, but took it back (once more) this May, 2018.

On the Today show, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. claimed multiple sources assured police that Skakel was miles away from Moxley at the time of her murder. He also said that one person confessed to the killing, but investigators refused to consider any other suspects.
