GREEN BAY (AP) - Those who investigate deaths in Wisconsin could face tougher licensing restrictions under a proposal aimed at preventing missteps that might impede a criminal investigation. Supporters want coroners and medical examiners to be licensed and receive 40 hours of training. They also want the state to create a board that oversees the state's elected coroners and sets requirements for continuing education, the Press-Gazette Media reported Saturday.
