Wesley Mathews indicted for capital murder

Texas father charged with capital murder in adopted girl's death

A Dallas County grand jury has indicted Wesley Mathews on charges of capital murder and tampering with physical evidence in the death of his adopted daughter, Sherin Mathews. "Based on the autopsy report we were able to determine we could seek capital murder in this case", Johnson said Friday. Police said Wesley Mathews then gave them another story: That she choked on her milk, and believing she died, he hid her body in a culvert.

The attorneys for Sini Mathews tell NewsFix, "The indictments handed down today by a Dallas County Grand Jury confirm what we have previously stated".

If convicted on the capital murder charge, Wesley Mathews faces the death penalty or life in prison without parole.

We still don't know exactly how Sherin Mathews died.

"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 are committed to continue our diligent and steadfast efforts to seek justice on their behalf".

When Dakil reported her findings to Sini Mathews, the mother said she disagreed with the findings and told the pediatrician that a report to Child Protective Services would "ruin her weekend", Dakil said.

Trump threatens that his upcoming physical exam 'better go well'

Mathews had initially told authorities he made Sherin stand outside because she wouldn't drink her milk, and she disappeared.

His wife, 35-year-old Sini Mathews, is being held on a charge of abandoning a child.

An autopsy released earlier this month revealed that 3-year-old Sherin Mathews died of "homicidal violence" after she disappeared from her adopted family's Richardson home on October 7, 2017. Eventually, Sherin began to drink the milk and he said he "physically assisted" the girl in drinking the milk while they were in the garage. She was coughing and her breathing slowed.

The adoptive father admitted to police that he disposed of the child's body after she choked on her milk, according to a probable cause affidavit released.

Wesley Mathews was jailed on $1 million bond last fall. The punishment for that ranges from two to 20 years in prison with a fine up to $10,000.
