Texas father changes story about toddler's death

Wesley Mathews 37 arrested for suspected child endangerment

The adopted father of the missing 3-year-old Sherin Mathews was arrested on Monday and was charged with the first-degree felony, which is punishable by life or from 5 to 99 years in prison. He's being held on $1 million bond.

According to an arrest affidavit, a copy of which Richardson Poice has shared on social media, Wesley said that he had been trying to get Sherin to drink her milk in the garage.

The police found Sherin's remains about a half mine from her home in Texas in a drainage tunnel on Sunday.

Police said that Mathews voluntarily arrived at the police station with his attorney on Monday and provided an "alternate statement of events from those he had given previously" regarding Sherin's disappearance on October 7.

Mathews and his wife adopted Sherin about two years ago from an orphanage in India, said Sgt. Kevin Perlich, a spokesman for the Richardson Police Department.

On this incident, a Samsung India spokesman said "We are in touch with relevant authorities for more information. The handset, a Samsung J7, belonged to Delhi resident Arpita Dhal and was kept in her handbag under the seat.

Mathews previously was charged with suspected child endangerment after telling police that he punished the child for not drinking her milk by making her stand next to a tree by an alley near their home. Mathews no longer felt her pulse and believed she had died. The 3-year-old went missing earlier this month. "She was coughing and her breathing slowed", the warrant said.

The affidavit does not say whether Mathews told police he administered any medical aid to the child.

Sherin Mathews was identified by dental records after officers using search dogs found her body in a culvert under a road, police said. Charges could also be filed against another person, police said. Police said that he reported her disappearance about five hours later.

State Child Protective Services removed Wesley and Sini Mathews' 4-year-old biological daughter from their home soon after Sherin was reported missing. After she began to drink the milk on her own, Mathews "physically assisted" her until she "began to choke", authorities said. A judge said Monday that the girl will remain in foster care until a custody hearing in November.

He was re-arrested for felony injury to a child after providing investigators at the Richardson Police Department with the conflicting story. Gonzales added, "We can begin looking into those relatives, but it is entirely up to the judge where she is placed". She had to be fed whenever she was awake, Perlich said. Rafael De La Garza, an attorney for Wesley Mathews, told The Dallas Morning News after Monday's hearing that his client was "mourning the death of his child", but he didn't address the criminal charges.
