Parents of 3-Year-Old Are Indicted in Her Death

A grand jury in Dallas County Texas returned several charges most notably capital murder against Wesley Mathews. He is accused of killing Sherin Mathews in October 2017

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.

Prosecutors said the murder charge, which could carry the death penalty, was filed after an autopsy determined the girl died from "homicidal violence".

Wesley was also indicted for injury to a child, which is punishable by five to 99 years in prison, as well as abandoning a child.

Shahid Kapoor essays the role of Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh is stepping into the shoes of Alauddin Khilji. "I am pretty sure that there is no official statement from the production house of the film ( Padmavat ) release".

Sherin's mother, Sini Mathews, surrendered to police in mid-November and was charged with child endangerment/abandonment. 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.

Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson scheduled a press conference for 1 p.m. with the Richardson Police Department, who she thanked for its work on the Sherin Mathews case.

Johnson said evidence in the case was still unfolding but that there was no indication anyone outside of Sherin's parents was involved in the death. "I am happy we are in a place where we can bring justice for this child". Her body was discovered a couple of weeks later. She's accused of abandoning Sherin.

These so-called core retail sales are the most consistent with the consumer spending element of gross domestic product (GDP). US retail sales rose in December past year for four months running driven by strong holiday sales.

Mathews was being held at the Dallas County jail on a $1million bond. 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 doctor also said she didn't believe Sini Mathews' assertion that Sherin broke her elbow when her older sister pushed her off the couch. She was coughing and her breathing slowed.

Wesley Mathews later changed his story and told police that his daughter died while he "physically assisted" her to drink milk. Because of the way the injuries had healed, Dakil said, she was confident that the injuries happened after her adoption. Court documents indicate Sini and her husband left Sherin home alone while they went to dinner with their biological daughter the night she disappeared.
