Amy Winehouse Inquest to Be Reopened Due to Unqualified Coroner

LONDON (AP) – The inquest into the death of soul singer Amy Winehouse was overseen by a coroner who lacked the proper qualifications and must be heard again next month, officials said Monday.

Assistant deputy coroner Suzanne Greenaway, who handled the inquest, resigned in November 2011 after her qualifications were questioned.

Camden Council said a new hearing has been scheduled on Jan. 8.

“The inquest into the death of Amy Winehouse had not technically been heard,” it said in a statement.

Winehouse was found dead in her London home in July 2011 at age 27. In an inquest in October 2011, Greenaway ruled that the “Back to Black” singer had died of accidental alcohol poisoning.
