GREENWICH - News 12 Connecticut spoke exclusively with the mother of Martha Moxley, the Greenwich teen who was murdered nearly 40 years ago.

Moxley was beaten to death with a golf club in Greenwich in 1975.

Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel was convicted of the crime and served 12 years in prison. A few months ago, Skakel was granted an appeal for a new trial and freed on bond.  He will wait until prosecutors decide whether they will seek a new trial in the case.

Moxley says she is not happy that Skakel is free or that he could get a new trial.

She says that even after almost 40 years, she won't give up hope for justice in her daughter's murder.
