Judge orders retrial for Michael Skakel, Kennedy nephew

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) -- A Connecticut judge has ordered a new trial for Michael Skakel, the nephew of Robert and Ethel Kennedy who was convicted of murder in 2002.

Skakel was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison and has been fighting for years to overturn his conviction, but his past attempts at appeal have been denied.

Skakel is accused in the 1975 killing of Martha Moxley in Greenwich, Connecticut.
