LONDON, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- A new inquest into British singer Amy Winehouse's July 2011 death is to begin next month, officials in London said.

Winehouse, 27, died after years of drug and alcohol abuse. The official cause of her death was deemed to be accidental alcohol poisoning.

TMZ said Monday a second inquest into the circumstances of her death has been ordered after it came to light Assistant Deputy Coroner Suzanne Greenaway was not experienced enough to oversee the recording star's autopsy, but was given the job by her coroner husband, who resigned from his post earlier this month in the wake of the scandal.

It is unclear if Winehouse's body will be exhumed as part of the new inquest, TMZ said.
