ASTORIA, Ore. (AP) — A Coast Guard hearing into the sinking of the fishing vessel Lady Cecelia reconvenes Monday in Warrenton.

The 70-foot trawler sank March 10 off the coast of southern Washington, and four people died. It was discovered in Sept. 9 about 20 miles off Point Ledbetter near Willapa Bay, Wash.

The Daily Astorian reports (http://is.gd/kaVTtV ) that Coast Guard investigating officers heard testimony from family and associates of the crew during previous hearings. Witnesses gave testimony on the history and condition of the vessel along with recollections of the crew and their experience.

The three-day hearing of the Coast Guard Formal Board of Investigation begins Monday and will be at Camp Rilea in Warrenton.
