Texas father charged with murder after 'force feeding milk to Indian orphan'

Parents of 3-Year-Old Are Indicted in Her Death 3-year-old Sharin Mathew's father could face the death penalty

The father of a three-year-old girl whose body was found in a drain near their suburban Dallas home about a year after she was adopted from an Indian orphanage was indicted Friday on capital murder.

Wesley Mathews, who was arrested in October a year ago after he changed his story about her disappearance, was initially charged with injury to a child will now also face a murder charge after the autopsy of his adopted daughter Sherin revealed she died from "homicidal violence".

Mathews told police that Sherin stifled and hacked and in the long run he felt she had no heartbeat and trusted the youngster had dead. 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.

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

On Friday a grand jury returned two indictments against Mathews.

Along with the capital murder change, Mathews is charged with felony injury to a child, abandoning a child and tampering with evidence.

Sherin Mathews was reported missing on October 7.

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

"We will be tenacious, we will be persistent, and we will prosecute this case to the fullest", she said.

Mathews initially said his daughter disappeared after he sent her outside as punishment for not drinking milk around 3 am on October 7. She said she hasn't decided whether to seek the death penalty. He remains jailed on $1 million bond.

He later told agents the young lady had formative inabilities and was malnourished.

Richardson Police Chief Jimmy Spivey said the case has been "very intensive" for his department.

He described a special diet regimen in which she had to eat whenever she was awake in order to gain weight.

"Wesley Mathews then physically assisted the 3-year-old in drinking the milk", last year's affidavit states.

Well, investigators won't say if she's cooperating, but she could also do time, possibly 20 years.

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