Mother of child found dead accused of leaving her home alone
DALLAS - The mother of a girl who was adopted from India and found dead last month in suburban Dallas has been charged with child abandonment after police allege that she left her home alone.
Richardson police say Sini Mathews turned herself in Thursday. Her bond was set at $250,000.
Police say 3-year-old Sherin Mathews was left home alone for 1½ hours the night of Oct. 6 while her family went to dinner and was still there when they returned. Police say they didn't take her with them after she refused to drink milk.
Wesley Mathews remains jailed on a felony injury to a child charge. Police have said he told them the child choked on milk he was trying to make her drink in the early hours of Oct. 7.
In a statement, attorney Mitch Nolte confirmed that he escorted Sini Mathews to the police department but didn't comment on the case against her.
