He said Ms Scott was identified by her fingerprints.

Mr Meadows told the court: “Her daughter has been arrested in connection with her death and has been charged with either murder or manslaughter.
“There is an ongoing criminal investigation.”
He suspended the inquest investigation ‘pending the outcome of any criminal proceedings’.
The inquest could be reopened ‘irrespective’ of the outcome, Mr Meadows added.
Cassandra Scott, 35, appeared before a judge on June 16, charged with the murder of her mother.
A trial date was set for January 11 next year.
