What is a coroner's jury?

A coroner's jury is a group comprised of six people who serve to assist in determining the manner of an individual's death such as via accident, suicide, natural causes, etc. The coroner's jury hears testimony at a coroner's inquest regarding the circumstances of a case(s) from which they make a determination of the manner of death. Those individuals selected for service on the coroner's jury serve a two-month period of time through which period they are called as needed depending upon the necessity of a coroner's inquest.
