GREENWICH - A judge will hear arguments this week on whether he has the authority to release Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel from prison while he awaits a new trial.

Prosecutors argue the judge can't release Skakel on bond because they are appealing that decision.

The bond hearing is set for Wednesday.
