Wesley Mathews Indicted on Capital Murder Charge

Wesley Mathews Indicted on Capital Murder Charge”

Wesley Mathews first told cops he made Sherin stand next to a tree at 3 a.m.as punishment for not drinking her milk.

"We will be tenacious, we will be persistent, and we will prosecute this case to the fullest", Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson said at a press conference Friday.

"We will seek justice as we do always in all of our cases and we will be seeking justice on her behalf", she said. After two weeks of looking, searchers found Sherin's body less than a mile from the house.

The medical examiner ruled Sherin, who was from India, died from homicidal violence but did not release additional details, CNN affiliate KTVT reported.

His wife Sini Mathews was indicted Friday on a charge of abandoning a child.

Friday's indictment adds abandoning a child and tampering with evidence, second-degree allegations punishable by two to 20 years in prison. Mother Sini Mathews must contend with a count of abandoning/endangering a child. That stems from the couple's decision to leave the girl at home on October 6 while they went out to dinner with their biological child, according to the indictment.

An attorney for Wesley Mathews did not immediately return a call for comment.

He reported his daughter missing on October 7, sparking a broad search involving numerous law enforcement agencies before her body was found on October 22. The couple left Sherin home alone the night before her disappearance, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

"That is absurd right there and then to come back after the body is found and walk into the police department with your lawyer and sit down for a voluntary interview and give a completely different story".

Mathews told police he had been trying to get his 3-year-old daughter to drink milk but she kept refusing. "The 3-year-old began to choke. Eventually Wesley Mathews no longer felt a pulse on the child and believed she had died". But after her body was found, he told police she choked to death and that he removed her body from the family's home in Richardson, about 15 miles (24 kilometers) north of Dallas.

Mathews was being held at the Dallas County jail on a $1million bond.
