(( Michael Skakel, the son of Rushton Skakel, Ethel Kennedy's brother is scheduled to answer allegations in the 1975 murder of his neighbor Martha Moxley. Moxley was 15 when she was found dead on her family's estate in Greenwich, CT. She had been part of a group of teens visiting the Skakel home the night before Halloween. Her body was found the next day beaten with a golf club and stabbed with the shattered shaft. The club was matched to a set owned by the Skakel family but no arrests were ever made. After more than twenty years, a judge acting as a grand jury got the case and interviewed more than 40 witnesses. Because Skakel was only 15 at the time of the killing, it's possible that he would be prosecuted initially as a juvenile, meaning details of the evidence against him and even his name could remain sealed. JONATHAN BENEDICT, CT STATE'S ATTORNEY I wanted to dispell any notion what-so-ever that while those matters are being conducted behind the closed doors of juvenile court, that nothing was actually being done. After more than two decades of dead ends, prosecutors have filed court documents claiming Skakel made admissions of guilt while residing at a substance abuse treatment center from 1978 to 1980. This information and the judge's findings have brought another Kennedy scandal into the headlines. Nick Young, CBS News, New York.))

A Hollywood sex symbol from the 1930's and 40's has died.
Hedy Lamarr was found dead today at the age of 86. The Austrian born actress was once billed as the world's most beautiful woman.
Lamarr first achieved international fame in the 1933 film''Ecstasy,'' in which she appeared nude. Her most successful movie was "Samson and Delilah," with Victor Mature.
The actress was also an accomplished inventor. She came up with a radio controlled torpedo guidance system that was used during the second World War.
While the system became a cornerstone of defense communications, Lamarr and a co-inventor reportedly never received any money for it.
