Dad Now Says Missing Texas Girl Choked on Milk

Mathews told police he then removed the girl's body from the home, though no further details were given about where he left his child, according to the affidavit.

The Texas father who told police his 3-year-old daughter disappeared after he sent her outside at 3 a.m.as punishment for not drinking milk has now told police she died from choking on the drink, according to an arrest warrant issued on Tuesday.

What was Sherin's father's previous version of events?

During an interview with police, Matthews said that he had been trying to get her to drink the milk as the two stood were in the garage on October 7, but she wouldn't listen to him, police said.

"We are still awaiting a positive identification from the Dallas County Medical Examiners office for the child's body found yesterday, believed to be Sherin Mathews", the latest statement read. "Eventually, Wesley Mathews no longer felt a pulse on the child and believed she had died".

Mathews has been charged with injury to a child, a first-degree felony. He was then released on bail bond of $250,000. The 3-year-old went missing earlier this month.

Watson was promoted from assistant to interim head coach of the Suns after Jeff Hornacek was sacked February 1, 2016. The Phoenix Suns have placed their starting point guard on the trading block, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Mathews told police his daughter "wouldn't listen to him", according to a police report. She has not co-operated with police since the weekend of October 7.

Now, Wesley has been charged on a charge of felony injury to a child, under which he faces "five to 99 years or life in prison", Star-Telegram said. "She was coughing and her breathing slowed", the warrant said.

Police Sgt. Kevin Perlich of Richardson said, the bond was set at $1 million on the adoptive father of Sherin.

The judge granted an extension, scheduling a new hearing for November 13, and ordering that the 4-year-old remain in foster care until then. Police said they believe Sini Mathews was sleeping when the girl went missing and was unaware of the alleged punishment. He surrendered his passport as a condition of making bond on October 9. The judge postponed the hearing until November 13 to give Wesley Mathews time to hire a civil attorney, said Marissa Gonzales, a spokeswoman for Child Protective Services. She had to be fed whenever she was awake, Perlich said.

She then "began to choke". Rafael De La Garza, an attorney for Wesley Mathews, told The Dallas Morning News after Monday's hearing that his client was "mourning the death of his child", but he didn't address the criminal charges.

"We are closely monitoring the Sherin Mathews case". She is reportedly working with police to help identify the body but has not provided any other information about what happened to her.
