NORWALK, Connecticut (CNN) -- Jury selection begins Tuesday in the trial of Michael Skakel, charged with the murder of his teen-age neighbor 26 years ago.
Martha Moxley, Skakel's 15-year-old neighbor, was found bludgeoned to death with a golf club outside her home in affluent Greenwich, Connecticut, on October 31, 1975.
Skakel, now 41 and the nephew of the late Sen. Robert Kennedy, was charged with the crime in January 2000, largely on the strength of witnesses who said he either admitted to killing Moxley or said he could have killed her in an alcohol-induced blackout.
Skakel's attorney, Mickey Sherman, told CNN he would use the prosecution's own expert witnesses to disprove their case.
