    Six more funerals will be held Wednesday for the victims of the deadly shooting in Newtown, Conn., while the school’s superintendent said classes are expected to resume for the survivors at a nearby school in January. Funerals will be held for principal Dawn Hochsprung; teacher Victoria Soto; Charlotte Bacon, 6; Daniel Barden, 7; Caroline Previdi, 6; and Chase Kowalski, 7. All were killed Friday along with 20 others at Sandy Hook Elementary School when Adam Lanza, 20, opened fire in the school before killing himself. Lanza’s mother was found dead in her home nearby on the same day. A family acquaintance said Tuesday that Lanza had been estranged from his father and brother for the past two years.
