(from Ch. 34, par. 3-3008)
Coroner to act when sheriff prejudiced.
When it appears from the papers in a case that the sheriff
or his deputy is a party thereto, or from affidavit filed that
he is interested therein, or is of kin, or partial to or prejudiced
against either party, the summons, execution or other process may
be directed to the coroner, who shall perform all the duties in
relation thereto, and attend to the suit in like manner as if he
were sheriff; and the interests, consanguinity, partiality or
prejudice of the sheriff shall not be cause for a change of venue.
