GREENWICH - Convicted killer and Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel will be back to court this week to appeal his conviction.

He is serving 20-years-to-life sentence for beating his 15-year-old neighbor Martha Moxley to death in Greenwich in 1975.

He is the nephew of former senator and presidential candidate Robert Kennedy.
