FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) — A judge is deciding whether to open the courtroom for the initial appearance of a 16-year-old New Jersey boy charged with fatally shooting his parents, his sister and a family friend on New Year's Eve. The judge is weighing a motion by a news organization seeking access to the early afternoon hearing, which is in family court and not open to the public. Monmouth County prosecutors are scheduled to hold a news conference after the hearing.
