Kennedy cousin's murder conviction overturned, new trial ordered

Kennedy cousin's murder conviction overturned, new trial ordered(Reuters) – A divided Connecticut Supreme Court on Friday threw out the 2002 murder conviction of Michael Skakel, a member of the Kennedy family, and ordered a new trial. The 4-3 decision upheld a lower court judge’s 2013 ruling that Skakel’s lawyer did not provide an adequate defense, necessitating a new trial on charges that he killed his neighbor Martha Moxley at her Greenwich home in 1975. Justice Richard Palmer, writing for the majority, said the trial lawyer had failed to present the jury with testimony from a witness who could have provided an alibi for Skakel.


Connecticut state court vacates Kennedy relative murder conviction

Connecticut state court vacates Kennedy relative murder convictionThe top court in the state of Connecticut on Friday vacated the murder conviction of a nephew of Robert F. Kennedy over the violent death of a 15-year-old girl and recommended a new trial, the latest twist in a decades-long legal battle. The written opinion reverses the court’s own decision in December 2016 which had reinstated the conviction of Michael Skakel, a nephew to the slain former attorney general through his widow Ethel. Martha Moxley was killed in 1975, her body found under a tree after a pre-Halloween party on the Skakel family’s Belle Haven estate.


Trump administration moves to expel some 57,000 Hondurans

Trump administration moves to expel some 57,000 HonduransBy Mica Rosenberg and Gustavo Palencia NEW YORK/TEGUCIGALPA (Reuters) – The Trump administration said on Friday it will end temporary protections for immigrants in the United States from Honduras on Jan. 5, 2020, leaving potentially 57,000 people vulnerable to deportation. It is the latest in a series of decisions by President Donald Trump to shut down temporary protected status (TPS) granted to immigrants after natural disasters or violent conflicts that would prevent them from safely returning to their home countries. The government of Honduras said on Friday that it “profoundly regrets the cancellation of the program” and pledged free legal and consular support for Hondurans living in the United States.
