Father of 3-year-old Indian girl charged with murder

Sherin Mathews Father Indicted on Capital Murder Charge

The father of a 3-year-old young lady whose body was found in a duct close to their rural Dallas home minimal over a year after she was embraced from an Indian shelter was prosecuted Friday on a capital murder allegation.

A grand jury in Dallas County, Texas, on Friday returned several charges, most notably capital murder, against Wesley Mathews.

The medical examiner ruled Sherin Mathews' death a homicide but could not determine exactly how she died. Mathews is now charged with four felonies, including injury to a child and child abandonment.

Mathews, 37, told police that he disposed of the child's body after she choked on her milk early on October 7, according to a probable cause affidavit released at the time. Wesley initially told Richardson police he put Sherin outside in an alley because she wouldn't drink her milk.

He now faces life in prison or the death penalty.

District Attorney Faith Johnson said evidence in the case was still unfolding Friday, but that there was no indication anyone else was involved in the death. According to court records, Wesley Mathews, used a "deadly weapon" in the death of Sherin but the "exact nature and description" was not presented to the grand jury.
