Sandy Hook Victims' fund turns into controversy

Controversy is now surrounding Newtown over the Sandy Hook Victims' Fund.

Of the more than $11-million raised, just $7.7 million will go to the victims' families and that is not sitting well with everyone.

Some of the additional money is expected to go to others affected including school staff and first responders but more money is expected to be donated.

Some people are questioning how committee members came up with those numbers and whether that is the fairest way. Others want all of the money to go to the victims.

What fund committee members want to stress is that the plan released Thursday night is just a draft and could change before is finalized next week.
