Skakel Hearing Postponed

09/18/1997 at 12:00 AM EDT

A hearing on whether or not to allow a change of venue in the murder trial of Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel has been pushed back a day, from this Wednesday to Thursday, the court announced on Monday. Judge John F. Kavanewsky Jr. of Connecticut State Superior Court is to hear arguments from prosecutors, who want the trial moved to Bridgeport, and from the defense, which is opposed. Skakel is on trial for the 1975 bludgeoning death of his Westport neighbor, Martha Moxley. Both were 15 at the time.
