    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.

    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?

    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?

    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.

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

    That girl needs extra love and care right now, relatives are the best ones to provide that, people she already knows.

    How can the father be a factor in the custody issue?

    He admits to watching his child choke and die in front of him, then removing her body and hiding her. He will serve a jail sentence most likely.

    I know judges have made ridiculous decisions. The judge will see through this statement realizing there is more behind it. If he can't take care of a child, he needs supervised visitation at all times.

    Will this be a trial by jury or is Mathews to take the judge's decision since he pleaded guilty?

    Clip of WM's attorney speaking about the child custody hearing.

    https://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Sh...457233973.html

    He apparently had requested that WMs be transported to the court for the hearing today but that didn't happen. WM is not seeking visitation.

    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.
