A Kennedy to Stand Trial for Murder

NPR's Tovia Smith reports on the decision by a Greenwich, Connecticut judge that Michael Skakel, Ethel Kennedy's nephew, can stand trial for the murder twenty-five years ago of a 15-year old neighbor. It's still undecided, however, whether Skakel will be tried as an adult or a juvenile, and the penalties are vastly different.
