When Sherin was first reported missing, her father told cops he'd told the child to stand outside alone at 3 a.m.as punishment for not drinking her milk. Police charged him Monday with first-degree felony injury to a child. Mathews was previously charged with child endangerment but was free on bond and had to wear an ankle monitor.
Wesley Mathews reported that his adopted daughter Sherin went missing on October 7 from the family's home in Richardson, Texas, outside Dallas.

Mathews was later arrested and charged with abandoning or endangering a child before being released on $250,000 bond. What was Sherin's father's previous version of events? She had to be fed whenever she was awake, Perlich said.
Roughly five hours passed before Mathews contacted authorities, police said, and one of Mathews' vehicles left the residence between the time Mathews said Sherin disappeared and the time he called police.
"A lot of people have been saying that it's actually very impressive the way Texas police have been following up this case, and have not believed the father's story from the outset, and they went ahead and searched for the child", she says.
Mathews told police he knew coyotes had been seen in the alley where he told her to stay, the affidavit said.

The Bihar government had on Monday ordered an investigation into the adoption of the three-year-old Sherin Mathews from Mother Teresa Anath Seva Sansthan in Nalanda. She then began drinking the milk. According to police, Mathews said the girl was developmentally disabled and malnourished when he and his wife adopted her, and that they had to put her on a special diet that included feeding her whenever she was awake, including in the middle of the night, to help her gain weight. The child began coughing and choking, her breathing slowed and then there was no longer any pulse, he told police. She has reportedly not cooperated with the police since October 7. The medical examiner is working to determine the cause of death. Investigators have asked neighbors and area businesses to check their video surveillance cameras for footage of a maroon Acura SUV owned by the Mathews family that they believe left the home between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. on October 7. Police said they believe Sini Mathews was sleeping when the girl went missing and was unaware of the alleged punishment. Mathews said he decided at that point to do laundry while he waited for daylight to look for the girl or for her to return.
The Mathews' had adopted Sherin in June 2016 after she was abandoned in her native country of India, the Dallas News reported.
