He was arrested and charged with injury to a child.
Police were alerted to the situation when they Mirandized Wesley Mathews Oct. 23, a day after Sherin's body was found about a mile away from the Mathews' home. CBS DFW reports that when he was initially arrested he told police that he was punishing Sherin for not drinking her milk and that at 3 a.m. he ordered her outside to stand by a tree about 100 feet outside their backyard.
He later changed his story and said she choked to death on milk and that he got rid of her body in the storm drain not far from their home, police said.
Turkey, Russia and Iran to hold summit on Syria next week
The US draft text received 11 votes in favor, while Russian Federation and Bolivia voted against it and China and Egypt abstained. Russia's decision to veto the resolution provoked an angry reaction from the United States envoy to the UN, Nikki Haley.
Meanwhile, Wesley Mathews, who is charged with felony child endangerment and faces a life sentence, continues to refuse any legal representation while in custody, according to a Facebook update by the police November 8.
Later, he confirmed that he chose to leave Sherin home alone after she refused to drink milk while he grew impatient.
In a statement, attorney Mitch Nolte confirmed that he escorted Sini Mathews to the police department but didn't comment on the case against her.
Is Time Warner keeping rotten 'Justice League' reviews from fans?
Generally, the closer the reviews are published to the movie's release date, the lower the score, according to a Mashable report. It's also destined to play much better in global markets, ensuring another commercial success for Warner Bros .
While Sini's arrest does not directly tie her to the death of her daughter, the latest twist in the investigation has at least one neighbor disgusted. Sherin's cause of death is still pending. Sini Ann Mathews' bond has been set at $ 250,000. "She voluntarily complied without being coerced or threatened, leaving Sherin Mathews home alone in the kitchen of the house", Patch.com reported, citing the affidavit. Those results will be made available when complete, police said.
The abandonment charges center around investigators belief that Sini left Sherin home alone for more than an hour, while the rest of the family went to a restaurant in Garland and ate dinner.
Sherin's death prompted External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to ask the Indian Embassy in the USA to be actively involved in the case and keep her informed. He is being held in Dallas County, Texas jail on $1 million bail. For the uninitiated, Sherin was adopted from Mother Teresa Ananth Seva Ashram in Bihar's Nalanda district two years ago by the Kerala couple. They checked with the restaurant to confirm only one of the Mathews' children was with them at dinner, and found a receipt proving the family was there that night. Mathews said he no longer felt a pulse on the child and believed she died. He admitted to removing the body once he realised that she was dead. The couple's other child is being placed with family in Houston, Texas, in the wake of her parents' arrests.
