Prosecutor seeks redaction in Newtown warrants

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut prosecutor is seeking the redaction of some information from search warrants in the Newtown school shooting that are due to be released on Thursday.

State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky III filed the motions Wednesday in Danbury Superior Court. An order to seal the documents related to the massacre last year at Sandy Hook Elementary School is expiring this week.

Sedensky asked a judge not to disclose the name of a witness, saying the person’s personal safety may be jeopardized if the name were disclosed. He also asked that other items not be disclosed, such as certain telephone numbers and a few paragraphs of an affidavit.

The gunman killed his mother in their Newtown home before massacring 26 people at the school on Dec. 14. He then committed suicide.
