Mom of Martha Moxley: "I do believe Michael Skakel killed my daughter...I don't believe there is any doubt"

On the backdrop of a shocking turn of events which revealed the news that Michael Skakel will be retried for the 1975 murder of Martha Moxley, on Wednesday evening "Piers Morgan Live" invited Dorothy Moxley to the program to offer her unique insight and perspective.

The mother of the woman killed nearly three decades ago, Moxley is invoking an entirely analytical approach in response to the sudden twist:

"Well, first of all, there's not a way they can erase what was said during the first trial. What was said at the first trial is still in evidence. I'm sure. So, you know, I have not given up," she told Piers Morgan. "I do believe Michael Skakel killed my daughter. I don't believe there's any doubt in that. He convicted himself practically. And there has been absolutely no new evidence that means anything since the trial. So I am not concerned. If there is a new trial, I will be there."

Convicted in 2002, more than a quarter century after the crime, there is little doubt in Moxley's mind that the legal process was followed explicitly, and that all due-diligence was done:

"Once we knew who it was, once we had the proof, I have not had one bit of doubt, no, absolutely not. It took us a long time, you know. It took us 27 years to find and convict him. So it wasn't that we rushed to judgement on this," she said as part of a live interview. "He was pretty clever in the way he avoided being caught."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Moxley's mother, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.
