Texas man charged with capital murder in death of adopted daughter

Prosecutors said the murder charge which could carry the death penalty was filed after an autopsy determined the girl died from'homicidal violence

A Dallas County grand jury indicted the father and mother of a dead Richardson girl on Friday.

Wesley Mathews, who was arrested in October previous year 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".

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

The indictment released Friday alleges Mathews caused his daughter's death on October 7 using a deadly weapon that 'is unknown to the grand jury'. Also, while they believed that her father used a deadly weapon in the incident, the grand jury didn't know what that weapon was supposed to be.

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

Authorities say Mathews initially told investigators that Sherin disappeared before dawn on October 7, 2017, after he made her stand outside as punishment for not drinking her milk.

Wesley Mathews told police that he forced Sherin to drink her milk when she refused, then removed her body from the home after she "choked" and died.

He reported his daughter missing on October 7, sparking a broad search involving numerous law enforcement agencies before her body was found on October 22.

A phone message left by The Associated Press seeking comment from Mathews' attorney wasn't returned Friday. Court documents indicate Sini and her husband left Sherin home alone while they went to dinner with their biological daughter the night she disappeared.

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

Mathews was being held at the Dallas County jail on a $1million bond.

Mathews said he had been trying to force the girl to drink milk in the garage of their home, according to an arrest affidavit filed by Richardson police. Johnson said she would seek a higher amount.

In his initial report to police, Wesley Mathews said he waited several hours to report the girl missing and had done laundry as he waited for her to come home.
