The inquest into the death of singer Amy Winehouse is re-heard since it was discovered that the coroner overseeing the case was not properly qualified.
Winehouse, a Grammy-winning singer known for her electric mix of musical styles and turbulent love life, was found dead in her north London home in July 2011. She was 27-years-old.
The assistant deputy coroner for London, Suzanne Greenaway, ruled that the singer died of accidental alcohol poisoning. The original hearing recorded a verdict citing death by misadventure.
However, it was later discovered that Greenaway was not properly qualified for her position, to which she had been appointed by her husband Andrew Reid, the coroner for inner north London.
The law required Greenaway to have either five years experience with the Law Society or five years experience as a qualified medical practitioner. She did not meet either criteria. Greenaway resigned in November 2011 following an investigation into her qualifications. Reid resigned in December 2012 after the Office for Judicial Complaints had started disciplinary proceedings against him.
According to Winehouse's father Mitch Winehouse, the family is not planning to attend the re-hearing. He stated that, "we are not going to put ourselves through that again because of someone else's total and absolute inefficiency."
