The house of the Sandy Hook Elementary School killer will be torn down and its 2-acre parcel kept as open space, the Newtown Legislative Council decided Wednesday night.
The council voted, 10-0, to approve the recommendation by the board of selectmen to demolish the two-story, 3,100-square-foot colonial where Adam Lanza lived with his mother, Nancy. The Connecticut town acquired the property in December from a bank at no cost.
Town officials indicated demolition would likely happen when winter ends.
The now-infamous house has sat empty since Dec. 14, 2012, when the 20-year-old Lanza killed his mother in her sleep and then massacred 20 children and six adults at a nearby elementary school before committing suicide. To prevent souvenir hunters, the contents of the house were burned.
