Kingston: Deputy Commissioner of Police, Jamaica, Coroner Patric Murphy, called an end to the testimony into the death inquest of former Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer.

The inquest went on for 26 days under the supervision of Murphy.

An 11-member jury will now begin their deliberations on the cause of death after Murphy called an end to the testimony yesterday.

Murphy, in his report has listed murder, manslaughter, death by natural causes, unlawful killing, suicide, accident or misadventure as the possible verdicts to the jury based on the evidence and testimony prestented to him.

Murphy added that in event of disputes among the jury, the court would only accept a majority verdict.

Woolmer, on March 18 died hours after he was found unconscious in his Jamaica hotel room, a day after Pakistan suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of Irelannd in this year's World Cup. Initial post-mortem report suggested that Woolmer was murdered, but later three independent pathologists concluded that he died of natural causes.
