48 HOURS: The Journal of Martha Moxley (10 p.m., CBS) – “48 HOURS” examines the 1975 murder of 15-year-old Martha Moxley, who was beaten to death with a golf club in her Tony Belle Haven neighborhood in Greenwich, Connecticut. Erin Moriarty takes a fresh look at the case through the first television interviews with two of Moxley’s friends, and through her own writings. Moxley’s case caught the nation’s attention in part because of his connection to the Kennedy family. Moxley spent his last night alive with young members of the Skakel family, cousins ​​of the Kennedys. In 2000, Michael Skakel was charged with his murder. He was convicted in 2002 and sentenced to 20 years in life. After spending more than a decade in prison for the murder, in 2013 a judge granted Skakel a new trial, saying his first lawyer had failed to adequately represent him. In 2018, the Connecticut Supreme Court overturned his murder conviction and ordered a new trial. But in 2020, prosecutors said they would not try him again.
