The AP is reporting that officials in London say the inquest into Amy Winehouse's death was overseen by a coroner who "lacked the proper qualifications," and will be reheard next month. Amy died suddenly in July 2011 and the initial inquest concluded that the singer succumbed to accidental alcohol poisoning. 

Suzanne Greenaway, the assistant deputy coroner who performed the inquiry into Winehouse's death, had been appointed to the position by her husband. She was resigned a month after the inquest when her qualifications were questioned. Her husband, Andrew Reid, is the coroner for inner north London, but he has also resigned.

No word as to who requested the new inquest; a spokesperson for the Winehouses said it was not Amy's family. The inquest will take place January 8.

August 29: Little Orphan Ed?

The "Don't" singer, Ed Sheeran, makes a special appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" as the lovable orphan, Annie. Donning the famous red dress, and the equally famous red hair, we think Sheeran would make a great understudy. The best part though? His little dog friend, Sandy on that skateboard.
