The Skakel brothers were well know in the neighborhood for their behavior and lack of discipline -- and also because they were the nephews of Ethel Skakel-Kennedy, widow of the late Senator Robert F. Kennedy.
Skakel had died of cancer two years earlier leaving her husband Rushton to raise their large and reportedly unruly family.
The Skakels stopped cooperating with police in early 1976 and have since refused to be interviewed.
Skakel, the 41-year-old nephew of Ethel Skakel Kennedy, faces 60 years in prison — which was considered life in prison when the crime was committed — if convicted of a single count of murder.
