What happens if criminal proceedings are also brought?

The defendant charged with murder or manslaughter, ‘child destruction’ (killing a foetus after 28 weeks), causing death by reckless driving or taking part in another person’s suicide, the inquest is postponed until the defendant’s trial is over. Before adjourning, the coroner finds out who the deceased was and how the deceased died. After the criminal trial the Coroner may resume the Inquest if deemed appropriate.
