STAMFORD - Michael Skakel enjoyed his first full day of freedom today after 11 years in prison.

A Stamford judge granted Skakel bail yesterday as he awaits a new trial for the 1975 murder of Greenwich teen Martha Moxey.

Private investigator Vito Colucci, who has been involved with the case since 2000, says he has always known of Skakel's innocence.

Colucci says Skakel's first moments of freedom came with prayer and joy as Colucci drove him back to his house. Colucci also said that Skakel will now spend his time with his family.
