Skakel's attorneys reveal identity of two men implicated in Moxley murder
Attorneys for Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel implicated two men Monday in the 1975 murder of Greenwich teen Martha Moxley.
Skakel, who is currently serving 20 years to life for the murder, is seeking a new trial based on a claim from Kobe Bryant's cousin that two men killed Moxley. Skakel's attorneys revealed in court papers that the two men are Adolf Hasbrouck of Bridgeport and Burt Tinsley of Portland, Oregon. The men denied any involvement in the killing when interviewed by The Hartford Courant in 2003.
Skakel's attorneys initially reached an agreement to disclose the names only to prosecutors, but Superior Court Judge Edward Karazin ordered the attorneys to put the names in public court documents.
The petition for a new trial, filed in Stamford Superior Court, is separate from an appeal Skakel lost in January before the Connecticut Supreme Court.
