NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut judge says he wants to hear the 911 recordings from the Newtown school shooting before ruling whether they can be released to the media.

The state's Freedom of Information Commission ruled in September that the recordings should be provided to The Associated Press, but a prosecutor has asked for a stay while he appeals that order.
