The father of a 3-year-old girl whose body was found near the family's suburban Dallas home less than a year after she was adopted from an Indian orphanage was indicted Friday on a capital murder charge.

Announcing the charges at a press conference, Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson said capital murder carries either a death sentence or life in prison.

The India-born information technology professional has also been charged with two second degree felony offences: abandoning the child and for tampering with evidence.

Mathews' wife, Sini, was indicted for abandoning the child, which could get up to 20 years of jail time.

Mathews, 37, told police that he disposed of the child's body after she choked on her milk early on October 7, according to a probable cause affidavit released at the time. Wesley Mathews initially told police that the girl went missing 15 minutes after he sent her out of home as a punishment for not drinking milk.

Johnson said evidence in the case was still unfolding but that there was no indication anyone outside of Sherin's parents was involved in the death.

During one of the CPS hearings in late November, doctors testified that Sherin showed signs of abuse. "We will be seeking justice on her behalf". After two weeks of looking, searchers found Sherin's body less than a mile from the house.

He later said that he had been trying to force her to drink milk as part of a special diet, which required her to eat whenever she was awake to gain weight - he said the child had developmental disabilities and was malnourished. According to court records, Wesley Mathews, used a "deadly weapon" in the death of Sherin but the "exact nature and description" was not presented to the grand jury.

Wesley Mathews was jailed on $1 million bond last fall. She then began drinking the milk.

In his initial report to police, Wesley Mathews said he waited several hours to report the girl missing and had done laundry as he waited for her to come home. "We are going to make sure the fair, the right thing and just thing are done", Johnson said.
