"We will be tenacious, we will be persistent, and we will prosecute this case to the fullest." says Dallas County District Attorney, Faith Johnson. "Based on the autopsy report we were able to determine we could seek capital murder in this case", Johnson said Friday.

When Dakil reported her findings to Sini Mathews, the mother said she disagreed with the findings and told the pediatrician that a report to Child Protective Services would "ruin her weekend", Dakil said. The family said they left her behind because she wouldn't drink her milk, but when they came back an hour-and-a-half later, Sherin was still in the kitchen. She was coughing and her breathing slowed. He was initially charged in October, 2017, with felony injury to a child and his bond was set at $1 million. "Eventually Wesley Mathews no longer felt a pulse on the child and believed she had died".
Mathews allegedly said he placed her body in the back of his vehicle with a bag of garbage, drove to a shopping center where he disposed of the garbage, then to a culvert where he hid her body, reports CBS DFW. Both carry prison time of between two years and 20 years.
She admitted: "I don't think I'll ever completely lose that by Shane I'm cool with as I know what's behind that exterior". I think people just see me as a Big Brother corpse at the moment, like when a bit of meat has gone off in the fridge.
