    Sherin Mathews Died of 'Homicidal Violence,' Sources Confirm
    A source close to the investigation has confirmed that Sherin Mathews, a 3-year-old girl adopted from India and found deceased in a ditch in Richardson last year, died from "homicidal violence."

    The attorney for Sini Mathews, Sherin's adoptive mother, told NBC 5 that nothing in the autopsy or toxicology reports implicate Sini in the toddler's death.

    Details of the autopsy and toxicology reports are expected to be released Wednesday.

    Sini and Wesley Mathews, Sherin's adoptive parents, are expected in court Wednesday morning to try to regain custody of their biological daughter.

    The girl's body was found Oct. 26, more than two weeks after Wesley Mathews, her adoptive father, had reported her missing. Wesley and his wife, Sini, face criminal charges in connection with Sherin's death.

    Wesley Mathews remains in custody on $1 million bond for felony injury to a child with intent to commit serious bodily injury. Sini Mathews is also in jail, held on $100,000 bond for child endangerment/abandoning for allegedly leaving Sherin home alone while she, her husband their other daughter went to dinner on Oct. 6, the night before Wesley reported Sherin missing.

    The Richardson Police Department and the FBI continue to investigate the toddler's death.


    The couple has been fighting for custody from the state of their biological child, a 4-year-old girl living with family in the Houston area.

    Richardson police have not released a new statement regarding the autopsy results at this time.

    NBC 5's Maria Guerrero contributed to this report.

    Sherin Mathews death: India suspends U.S. adoption agency

    New Delhi, January 07, 2018 14:44 IST
    Updated: January 07, 2018 14:51 IST

    Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi took the decision to suspend Holt International, the authorised foreign adoption agency.

    The Centre has suspended an American adoption agency for “negligence” in its assessment of adoptive parents of three-year-old India-born Sherin Mathews who died in the U.S., government sources said.

    Sherin Mathews, who was adopted by an Indian-American couple in 2016, died in October 2017 allegedly from choking after her adoptive father “physically assisted” her with drinking milk.

    Both the adoptive parents are in jail. An autopsy report recently ruled that Sherin Mathews died because of “homicidal violence”.

    Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi took the decision to suspend the authorised foreign adoption agency (AFAA), Holt International, government sources said.

    They added, that the government has written to the Indian Embassy in the U.S., the Central Authority, which is the nodal body for adoptions in the U.S., and Holt International, informing them about the decision.

    “We have suspended the operations of Holt International because we found it negligent in the assessment of the adoptive parents and also in the post placement assessment of the family,” CEO, CARA (Child Adoption Resource Authority), Lt. Col. Deepak Kumar, said. He added that a decision on cancelling the AFAA’s authorisation will be taken after detailed reports from the Indian Embassy as well as the CA. CARA is India’s nodal body for adoption.

    While the death of Sherin Mathews came to light in October, the government delayed acting against the AFAA due to Ivanka Trump’s visit to India in November, it is reliably learnt from different government officials. A top government official said that India was treading cautiously because it did not want the ties between the two countries to be impacted. Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj had also sought a probe into the “adoption process” of Sherin Mathews in October.

    A grand jury this month is expected to review charges filed against the girl’s adoptive parents. The adoptive father, Wesley Mathews, is under arrest on the charge of injury to a child, punishable up to life in prison. The adoptive mother, Sini Mathews, has been charged with child endangerment or abandonment relating to the death punishable by up to two years in jail.

    Following the incident, CARA has made mental well-being of overseas applicants seeking to adopt a child an important criterion for determining their eligibility.

    Homicidal violence would cover a multitude of sins, I bet.

    Sherin Mathews' Father Indicted On Capital Murder Charge

    By Holley Ford
    Published at 12:06 PM CST on Jan 12, 2018 | Updated 2 hours ago

    The father of Sherin Mathews, the 3-year-old girl adopted from India and found deceased in a culvert near the family’s Richardson home, was indicted Friday on a capital murder charge.

    "We can't go into details, but based on that autopsy report, we were able to determine that we can seek capital murder for this case," Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson said at a news conference announcing the indictment.

    Wesley Mathews, the toddler's 37-year-old adoptive father, was also indicted by a Dallas County grand jury on charges of abandoning a child and tampering with evidence.

    Sherin's body was found Oct. 26, more than two weeks after Wesley Mathews had reported her missing. Wesley Mathews initially told police Sherin disappeared after he punished her by sending her out in the night to stand by a tree near the home.

    The father later changed his story to police and said that his daughter choked after he "physically assisted" her in drinking milk. He told investigators that he then moved her body from the home and planned to go back later and give her a proper burial.

    The Medical Examiner's office ruled last week the toddler died of "homicidal violence."

    Prosecutors are not revealing what else they may know about how the little girl was killed.

    "The evidence is still unfolding in this case. We don't want anything to jeopardize this case. We think that we have a great case, we plan to pursue this case vigorously, and we don’t want anything to hamper it in any kind of way," Johnson said.

    Wesley Mathews was initially arrested on a felony charge of injury to a child with intent to commit serious bodily injury. He remains jailed on $1 million bond. His wife, Sini Mathews, is also in jail, held on $100,000 bond for child endangerment/abandoning for allegedly leaving Sherin home alone while she, her husband their other daughter went to dinner on Oct. 6, the night before Wesley reported Sherin missing.

    In a statement Friday afternoon, Mitchell Nolte and Gregg Gibbs, attorneys for Sini Mathews, said:

    "The indictments handed down today by a Dallas County Grand Jury confirm what we have previously stated. Sini Mathews had nothing to do with the tragic death of Sherin Mathews."

    Rafael De La Garza, attorney for Wesley Mathews, told NBC 5 that he does not have a statement at this time.

    Oh, so what'd he do, strangle her? And what's the deal with mom going out to eat with him and the other kid? Like she didn't know something was dreadfully wrong.

    *snort*

    I think it's safe to say he didn't strangle her, but she couldn't breathe.

    Did you guys catch that the wife was a registered nurse at Dallas Children’s Medical Center?

    Can you just imagine having this woman as a nurse taking care of your sick child?!

    I hate the thought that she had access to sick children.

    I can't stand the thought of her taking care of any human being.
