The Connecticut Supreme Court is planning to release its ruling on Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel's appeal of his murder conviction in the 1975 slaying of his 15-year-old neighbor.
Prosecutor Susann Gill tells The Associated Press that she was notified the state's highest court is expected to release its ruling late Monday morning.
Skakel, a nephew of Ethel Kennedy, was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison in 2002 for fatally beating Martha Moxley with a golf club in Greenwich.
Skakel had asked for a new trial after another man implicated his two friends in the killing. But a judge in Stamford turned that request down in 2007. Skakel then appealed.
Skakel is a nephew of Robert Kennedy's widow, Ethel.
