The Seattle Times reports that the scheduling of the inquest and other related matters were discussed Monday in a hearing held before King County District Court Judge Susan Mahoney.
The inquest jury proceeding is designed to determine the causes and circumstances of any death involving a member of a King County law-enforcement agency in the line of duty.
Jurors for an inquest are not charged with determining any criminal or civil liability either on the part of the officers and or the agency they work for.
Ms. Lyles, a 30-year-old black mother of four, was shot seven times by two Seattle police officers in June after she had called 911 to report someone had broken into her apartment and had stolen some items.
Police say the officers opened fire and shot her to death because she threatened them with a knife.
