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

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

For example, the "manner and means" of Sherin's death was "unknown" to jurors. She then choked on the milk and died, he told police.

"We have some information in terms of what might have happened, but we are still investigating", District Attorney Faith Johnson said during a Friday news conference, adding that her office had not decided whether it would seek the death penalty. "We do want to make sure that justice is done, on behalf of this little three year old", says DA Johnson.

His change of statement came after a massive search for the three-year-old ended with the police finding her body at a culvert near their home in Dallas, Texas. The autopsy called it homicidal violence, but wasn't more specific.

"We can't go into details, but based on that autopsy report, we were able to determine that we can seek capital murder for this case", she said. Father Wesley Mathews faces a capital murder charge for her October 2017 death. He was also indicted Friday for tampering with evidence, KXAS-TV reported.

Sini Mathews has not been charged with any other charges at this time but has been indicted on the child abandonment charge. Law&Crime could not reach the defendants for comment.

If convicted on the capital murder charge, Wesley Mathews faces the death penalty or life in prison without parole. The couple left Sherin home alone the night before her disappearance, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. He told a detective that he had been trying to get Sherin to drink her milk in the garage, and she wouldn't listen to him, the affidavit states. "The 3-year-old began to choke". She was coughing and her breathing slowed. The doctor also said she didn't believe Sini Mathews' assertion that Sherin broke her elbow when her older sister pushed her off the couch. 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 is being held at the Dallas County jail on a $1 million bond. The punishment for that ranges from two to 20 years in prison with a fine up to $10,000.
