Jury to look into death of Schuylkill County Prison inmate

A jury has been assembled to look into what caused the death of an inmate at Schuylkill County Prison.

Matthew Koncsler, 21, of Shenandoah, died last March at the prison.

The jury will have to decide if Koncsler died because of a criminal act or negligence.

An autopsy didn't immediately reveal a cause of death.

The inquest is expected to begin within the next few weeks.

It's the county's first in more than a decade.
