DALLAS — The father of a 3-year-old girl whose body wasless than a year after she was adopted from an Indian orphanage has been indicted on a capital murder charge. Dallas County court records show 37-year-old Wesley Mathews also faces charges of abandoning a child and tampering with evidence.
He is already charged with felony injury to a child.
Police say Mathews told investigators that Sherin Mathews choked on her milk.
Mathews is being held at the Dallas County jail on a $1 million bond. His wife, 35-year-old Sini Mathews, is being held on a charge of abandoning a child.
An attorney for Wesley Mathews did not immediately return a call for comment.
