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

Prosecutors say they have decided not to appeal a ruling last week that lifted a stay in the case and allowed for bond.

The hearing is scheduled for Nov. 21 in Stamford.

A judge ruled last month that Skakel's trial attorney failed to adequately represent him in 2002 when he was convicted.

Skakel wants to be released on bond while awaiting the new trial.
