Two family members of Newtown School Shooting victims testified on Wednesday before a Connecticut task force that's exploring the public's right to information versus a victim's right to privacy following a homicide. Both family members urged the task force not to recommend releasing 911 audio tapes from the December 14th shooting.  

Meanwhile, Danbury's State's Attorney  Stephen Sedensky III  asked a Connecticut court on Wednesday to stay an order form the Freedom of Information Commission to release the 911 recordings.
