On Monday, authorities arrested Mathews and charged him with one felony count of injury to a child after he reportedly “changed his story.”
“Wesley Mathews said she wouldn’t listen to him. Eventually, the 3-year-old girl began to drink her milk. Wesley Mathews then physically assisted the 3-year-old girl in drinking the milk,” the affidavit states. The affidavit also stated that Mathews said that Sherin began choking on the milk and shortly after, her breathing stopped. Mathews allegedly said he then removed the little girl’s lifeless body from their home off of Sunningdale Road in Richardson, TX. source
On Monday, a body was found near the Mathews residence about 11 a.m. in a culvert near East Spring Valley and South Bowser roads, east of U.S. Highway 75. The coroner has not yet confirmed identity or cause of death, however, police say there is no reason to believe the body found is not the missing girl.
Detectives indicated that charges could be upgraded at any time pending test and evidence results.
Mathews remains behind bars on a $1 million bond.
