Murder in Greenwich Sunday, 8.30pm, Universal
This 2002 film follows the story behind one man’s fight for justice after the 1975 murder of Martha Moxley (Maggie Grace). The brutal crime — she was bludgeoned to death with a golf club — remains unsolved until Mark Fuhrman (Christopher Meloni), a former Los Angeles Police Department detective who wrote the book on which this is based, decides to visit the crime scene in Greenwich, Connecticut, to conduct his own investigation. Local authorities do their best to thwart his efforts although the original investigator, Steve Carroll (Robert Forster), agrees to help in the end. Together they zero in on Ethel Kennedy’s nephew and former Moxley neighbour Michael Skakel (Jon Foster), who is convicted in 2002 and sentenced to 20 years’ jail. Skakel was released last year on $US1.2m bail; the prosecution is appealing. An intriguing story that captured the world’s attention from the moment the poor girl’s body was found.
