Amy Winehouse - Amy Winehouse Death Inquest To Be Reheard

An inquest into the death of singer Amy Winehouse is to be reheard after the coroner involved in the initial investigation was found to be improperly qualified.

The Back to Black star died at her north London home last summer (Jul11) and after an inquest, assistant deputy coroner Suzanne Greenaway recorded a verdict of death by misadventure, stating Winehouse succumbed to alcohol poisoning after a booze binge.

However, Greenaway subsequently resigned when it emerged she did not have the correct qualifications for the role, and officials have now confirmed they will re-open the inquest into Winehouse's death.

The new hearing will be held at St Pancras Coroner's Court in London on 8 January (13).

Greenaway was appointed to the role by her husband, coroner for Inner North London Dr. Andrew Scott Reid, who resigned from his post earlier this month (Dec12).
