Mother of Texas toddler found dead now facing charges

Sini Mathews was arrested Thursday Nov. 16 2017 after surrendering to police. Mathews is the adoptive mother of Sherin Mathews, a 3-year-old whose body was recovered last month after she had been missing for weeks

Sini Mathews, the mother of Sherin whose body was recovered from a drainage culvert weeks here after she was reported missing was arrested on Thursday on a charge of child endangerment.

Sherin's father, Wesley Mathews, is now jailed on a felony injury to a child charge.

In video seen only on CBS 11, Sini Mathews had her attorney by her side when she walked into the Richardson Police Department to turn herself in Thursday afternoon.

Sini originally told police she was sleeping when her adopted daughter Sherin disappeared during the early morning hours of Saturday, Oct. 7. Police say Wesley Mathews ordered his daughter to stand next to a tree behind the fence at their home at around 3 a.m. on October 7 as punishment for not drinking her milk.

Her body would not be recovered until October 22.

Wesley Mathews later changed his story claiming that he was trying to get Sherin to drink her milk, but that she wouldn't listen to him and when she finally complied he "physically assisted her in drinking the milk". Sini Mathews, 35, surrendered to the Richardson police on Thursday and was being held on $250,000 bond in the state jail on the felony charge, the U.S. media reported.

Bkav added that they are also working on other versions of the technique that could make it easier to unlock someone's iPhone X . A stylus called the "Apple Pencil" was also reported to be in progress and is expected to launch along with the new tablet.

Sini's arrest happened just four days after she went to juvenile court to try and regain custody of her biological daughter, who remains in CPS custody.

According to a probable cause affidavit on Sini's arrest, it says that by leaving Sherin alone at the house, the parents placed their daughter "in imminent danger of death, bodily injury, or physical or mental impairment", Patch.com reported.

The 3-year-old girl went missing after her father made her stand outside in the middle of the night as punishment for not drinking her milk.

Sherin Mathews' body was found outside in a drain on October 22, about three weeks after she was reported missing.

Richardson police said the case is still very active and additional charges against Sini and Welsey Mathews are possible. Bail has been set at US$ 250,000, police said.

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. Mathews said he no longer felt a pulse on the child and believed she died. He said he left the little girl there and when he returned 15 minutes later discovered she was gone. Police said they were away for a hour and a half and when they returned home, Sherin was still in the kitchen. The couple's surviving child has been in foster care since shortly after her sister's disappearance. As this story is developing, elements may change.
