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.

A Connecticut task force reviewing ways to balance victims' privacy with the state's open records law held its third public hearing in Hartford on Wednesday.

Representatives of the Media urged the task force not to clamp down on information related to crime scenes, saying the public has a right to know what happened and how police handle incidents.
