The Fergus County Coroner's Office announced Tuesday that a coroner's inquest hearing into the fatal shooting at a Glasgow hospital will be convened later this month. Two other deaths will also be the subject of inquest hearings.

Coroner R.J. Brown said an inquest into the Jan. 16 death of Roger Lynn Sellers will be held May 19 at the Valley County Courthouse in Glasgow. Sellers was killed by law enforcement officers after killing nurse Melissa Greenhagen outside Frances Mahon Deaconess Hospital. Another woman was injured in the shooting, but authorities have released few other details.

On May 15, a coroner's inquest will be held into the death of Eric James Jones, who died Feb. 27 while being held at the Hill County jail in Havre. Jones was being held on a charge of murder for the 2008 beating death of Kimberly Calf Boss Ribs.

Brown said a third inquest has been scheduled for May 20 into the death of Terry Michael York near Conrad on Feb. 4. York was in the custody of law enforcement when he was taken to his home to get medication and tend to livestock. He shot himself. Details of how York obtained a gun while in custody have not been released.

Brown will preside over all three inquests, which are required by state law when someone dies while in custody or by the actions of law enforcement.
