GREENWICH, Conn. -- Michael Skakel compared the former inspector and state's attorney who prosecuted him in the 1975 murder of Greenwich teen Martha Moxley to terrorists during a conversation outside a courthouse last week, according to newstimes.com.

Skakel was convicted of the murder of his neighbor in 2002 and was serving his prison sentence when a judge granted him a new trial in 2013 due to the ineffectiveness of Skakel's defense attorney, newstimes.com said.
