Ricci Scheduled To Testify

(PORTLAND) -- Scarborough Downs racetrack owner Joe Ricci (Rich-ee) is scheduled to testify today before a grand jury investigating a notorious murder in Connecticut. Prosecutors want to find out what Ricci knows about the murder of 15- year-old Martha Moxley, who was beaten to death in 1975. Investigators have identified Thomas and Michael Skakel as suspects. Prosecutors believe Ricci may have heard a confession Michael Skakel supposedly made while attending a school Ricci operated in the 1970's. Skakel is the nephew of Ethel Kennedy.
