Last Easter, Matthew Koncsler, 21, was found dead in his prison cell inside Schuylkill County Prison.

This morning, a coroner's inquest took place at the Simon Kramer Institute, New Philadelphia with a jury of 6, 3 males and 3 females.

They heard the testimony of Pottsville Police, the mother of the inmate, medical staff, and video testimony of the pathologist who did the autopsy.  The jury ruled that Matthew Koncsler's manner of death was an accident and that his death was cause by negligence of another person.
