Skakel Sketch

Attorneys for Michael Skakel, who was convicted in June 2002 of the 1975 beating death of Martha Moxley, asked for a new trial claiming prosecutors suppressed this sketch of a man spotted in Moxley's neighborhood on the night she was killed. The attorneys claim the sketch bears a "striking resemblance" to former Skakel tutor Kenneth Littleton and would have been the "linchpin" of their defense that Littleton may have committed the crime.
