The biological child of the Richardson parents charged in connection with the disappearance and death of a 3-year-old will live with relatives.
Child Protective Services on Monday announced the four-year-old daughter of Wesley and Sini Mathews is with family members in Houston and no longer in foster care.
CPS took custody of the couple’s 4-year-old daughter when Wesley first reported that 3-year-old Sherin was missing. He eventually admitted to moving her body. He told investigators she choked and died after he forced her to drink her milk.
Because of the questionable circumstances surrounding Sherin’s death and possible additional criminal charges, the state did not want to offer any type of reunification services.
Wesley remains in jail, but his attorney said last week he loves his children and believes his 4-year-old daughter should live with her mother. Days later, Sini was arrested on a child endangerment charge. She had been allowed to visit her oldest daughter weekly.
Both Wesley and Sini Mathews remain behind bars at the Dallas County Jail.
