Newtown council to vote on razing home of man who killed 26 students, educators at Sandy Hook

Newtown officials are considering a plan to tear down the home of the man who killed 26 first-graders and educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The Newtown Legislative Council is scheduled to vote Wednesday night on a proposal to raze the house and preserve it as open space. The Connecticut town is also considering putting a limitation on the deed to the property specifying that the victims' families would get any proceeds from any sale or development of the land.

Adam Lanza shot and killed his mother, Nancy, in the home before going on the shooting rampage at the school in December 2012. He committed suicide as police closed in.

The house was given to the town in December by a bank that acquired the property from the Lanza family.
