An open verdict has been recorded at the inquest of a woman who died in Nelson in August.

East Lancashire Coroners’ Court heard that Renata Kaorkoziene (36) was found dead by her family at their home in Roland Avenue, Nelson, on August 5th.

Pathologist Dr Abdul Al-Dawoud concluded that there was nothing physically wrong with Mrs Kaorkoziene’s body. He put the cause of death as hanging and said an alcohol level twice that of the legal UK drink drive limit was found in her system.

The court heard the family moved to the UK from Lithuania and while husband Mindaugas Korkozas has managed to get a job, Mrs Kaorkoziene had not, despite wanting to.

The court heard Mr Korkozas had left the house to go to the supermarket with his eldest son after the couple had a minor argument. They returned a short time later with the couple’s two other younger children to find her dead.

Speaking through a translator, her husband Mindaugas Korkozas said there was “no explanation” for her death. There was no note or telephone message left.

Coroner Mr Richard Taylor said there was no definitive evidence pointing at suicide or accidental death.
