    Previous Thread #6


    THE LATEST:
    The couple went before a judge, along with officials from Texas Child Protective Services (CPS), concerning the custody of their 4-year-old biological child. CPS removed the little girl from the home and placed her in foster care just days after Sherin disappeared.

    http://dfw.cbslocal.com/2017/10/23/m...id-body-found/

    The father of a 3-year-old Texas girl missing since Oct. 7 told police that he watched his daughter choke on milk and die, then removed her body from the home, according to an arrest affidavit.


    Affidavit

    Body found in Richardson confirmed as missing 3-year-old Sherin Mathews

    The parents of Sherin Mathews are set to return to back to court Monday morning for the custody of their biological 4-year-old daughter.

    [...]

    CPS has been looking into possible relatives for the biological child to stay with moving forward.

    What if no relatives can take the older child?

    It is already happening :

    Sini and Wesley Mathews' biological four-year-old daughter could be placed in the care of family in the Houston area at any moment.

    Her attorney told the judge she is still in agreement that for the time being the little girl should go to live with relatives in Fort Bend County who have agreed to care for her.
    A CPS spokeswoman said that home study should be complete by Wednesday.

    The couple was last in court on the issue in October. The hearing was postponed then so Wesley could hire a civil attorney. This time his attorney argued he should be present to fight what he called “aggravated circumstances” which could hurt his chances of regaining custody in the long run.
    ...
    Because of the questionable circumstances surrounding Sherin’s death and possible additional criminal charges, the state does not want to offer any type of reunification services.

    Wesley remains in jail but his attorney said he loves his children and believes his 4-year-old daughter should live with her mother. He will be present at the next hearing to fight for custody.

    “...aggravated circumstances” which could hurt his chances of regaining custody in the long run. Oy vey. What an understatement.

    Interesting though that the attorney said "children" and not "daughter" or "child." Slip of the tongue, misreporting or said on purpose?

    Also in this article and video, another lawyer not involved in the case, said this:
    Attorney Bree West, who is not involved in this case, says she's not surprised the state is challenging the parental rights of both parents in light of the criminal circumstances, even though the mom has not been charged. “She was in the home at the time when whatever happened, happened,” West said. “And so did she fail to protect Sherin Mathews? Then if so, that's going to be an extension to her failing to potentially protect her biological child.”
    So NEW info is that the state is challenging the parental rights of both SM and WM. I wonder if this is a way to try to get SM to tell more...

    Isn't that just legalese for the state's act of taking custody of their child and putting the child in foster care ?

    I am not sure. From what I have read, this is an action to end their parental rights, completely. To make the temporary state of their child being in CPS custody a permanent one. My understanding is that this action to end parental rights was put in place after Sherin was found and WM confessed to removing her body from the house. But I could be wrong.

    This news report has a tiny bit in the video, where a man and woman (could be relatives of Sini's, maybe the ones who want to take care of the 4 year old) are let into the room with Sini and her lawyers.

    The severing of parental rights may only be applicable to WM, according to the text of the article above.

    Thanks for this link. It clearly states
    Prosecutors are looking at taking away all of Wesley's parental rights, known as an aggravated circumstances motion and it will likely be filed in the next week or so.

    "He loves his children and his wife and he's a good family man."

    I guess the term "good family man" is subjective.....

    I hope big sister gets placed with relatives asap. That's not always best but that girl has had her whole life and everyone in it ripped away. Poor baby. What a nightmare.

    I agree! Poor little girl, she has lost her whole immediate family at this point! I'm so glad that there is family to take care of her.

    Happy that the child will be with family rather than strangers.
