(FOX NEWS) Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel, who will get his first parole hearing Wednesday, deserves to be released from prison a decade after he was convicted of killing his neighbor because he was a victim of a miscarriage of justice and has been a model inmate, his supporters say.
But the victim's relatives want Skakel kept in prison the rest of his life, saying he was properly convicted and has shown no remorse.
