DALLAS (AP) — A judge has ruled that a suburban Dallas couple facing
charges after the death of their adopted 3-year-old daughter may not
have any contact with their 3-year-old biological daughter.
District Judge Cheryl Lee Shannon issued the ruling Tuesday after two days of testimony in the case.
Mathews is charged with first-degree felony injury to a child in the
death of Sherin Mathews, who was adopted from India. His wife is charged
with child endangerment or abandonment relating to the death.
previously said Wesley Mathews had said Sherin died after choking while
he was forcing her to drink her milk. On Tuesday, Richardson police
Detective Jules Farmer testified that Wesley Mathews told officers he
held Sherin as she died.
