Michael Skakel speaks to Jessica Santos, one of his defense attorneys, during the second day of Skakel's appeal trial at Rockville Superior Court Wednesday in Rockville, Conn. Attorneys for Skakel accused Michael Sherman, the attorney who represented him at his murder trial, of having a good time making trips around the country instead of preparing for the case. Skakel is the 52-year-old nephew of Robert F. Kennedy's widow, Ethel. He's serving 20 years to life in prison for the 1975 golf club bludgeoning of Greenwich neighbor Martha Moxley.
