    Yes and re-reading my post, ugh! Badly worded. I didn't mean it was sad that she would post a threat to her biological child. I meant that it's sad she might get her back eventually.

    I think they will make her go through hoops though.

    Poor little Sherin. She seems to have been a "back-up" plan that they grew to hate once their "real" child arrived.

    Poor baby. Beautiful little kid.

    I can't access this article:

    Does it say when the new trial date is? According to the court site - and they've had this on there before this was announced is:

    Thank you MissMalowe!

    Actually, all the articles said his trial started April 5th, while the court site showed 5/1 (as I posted in #442) - so don't know "where" that May 6th date came from! LOL!
    Seems like all kinds of dates floating around. I'll keep my eye out on the court site & see if they change it.

    They still list the pretrial hearing on 4/5 - so don't know IF that is still on.

She has been released from jail.

    Allegations of Neglect Predate Sherin Mathews' Death: ADA


    Prosecutors building a case against Wesley Mathews say he may have previously fractured his 3-year-old daughter Sherin's leg and neglected to provide her with adequate nutrition for more than a year before her death, according to a court document filed by Dallas County Assistant District Attorney Jason Fine on Wednesday.

    The document, a notice of extraneous offenses, alleges crimes, wrongs or acts that prosecutors plan to introduce as evidence in the upcoming murder trial.
    [.....]
    For the upcoming murder trial, prosecutors said they planned to introduce the following alleged crimes, wrongs or acts as evidence. Though he's been indicted in her murder, Wesley Mathews was never charged with any of the alleged offenses outlined below.
    [.....]
    Wesley Mathews' murder trial is scheduled to begin June 24.

    Weird. How is there evidence Wesley Mathews neglected to provide Sherin with adequate food for over a year before her death but nothing to show the same for Sini Mathews? Sini had nothing to do with feeding Sherin at all and was totally unaware of Wesley not feeding her? I can't believe she's been released. They are also asserting she didn't know he disposed of her body? She knew NOTHING?!?

    I find that impossible to believe.

    Especially since she's an RN answering a pediatric health line with a healthy 4 year old in the house. She is aware of growth curves....

    The early half of the Cinderella story, but our Sherin never reached the ball....

    Could Sini still reestablish parental rights to the older daughter if they’ve been terminated? @gitana1

    If they find her innocent of all charges I don't see how they could ever legally deny her rights to her daughter. I still can't get over them doing this though. Has anyone heard of a case where one parent is found guilty of depriving food and not the other in the same home? Particularly finding the one who didn't stay home with the kids as the one guilty of long term denial of food?

    No, no, no. OMG. This is so disgusting. I've always held the belief that she was just as responsible as her husband in Sherin's death. This is such an injustice for this baby girl.

    This is so incredulous to me. I truly believe that this woman is the boss in that household and she commands and he does her bidding. I'm so outraged right now.
