HARTFORD - The state Supreme Court has denied a request by Michael Skakel to reconsider its rejection of his appeal of his conviction in the 1975 killing of his Greenwich neighbor Martha Moxley.

The court denied the request last week.

The court had voted 4-1 in April against Skakel's bid for a new trial, saying a claim implicating two other men in the killing was not credible.

Skakel is currently serving 20 years to life in prison for his 2002 conviction.
