Panel Orders Release of Newtown 911 Tapes

HARTFORD, Conn. — Connecticut's Freedom of Information Commission has ordered the release of the 911 tapes from last year's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The commission ruled Wednesday in favor of an appeal by The Associated Press for access to the records withheld by investigators.

Prosecutors have argued that releasing the recordings could harm the investigation into the Dec. 14 massacre. The commission's ruling can be appealed in Connecticut's courts.
