Sherin Mathew murder : Indian-American foster father gets life term in jail

Sherin Mathew

Houston : Wesley Mathews, the Indian-American foster father of three-year-old Sherin Mathews, was sentenced to life term by a judge in Dallas on Wednesday for the traffic death of the Indian toddler in 2017.

Mathews,39 pleaded guilty Monday to a lesser charge of inquiry to a child in Sherin's death. He was originally charged with capital murder by authorities in the US state of Texas.

The prosecutors argued that Mathews killed Sherin. She was adopted by Mathews and his wife Sini Mathews from an orphanage in Bihar in 2016. However, Mathews claimed that she accidentally choked to death on milk.

When her body was found, it was so badly decomposed that the medical examiner could not determine an exact cause of death.
