Sherin's parents give up custody fight for biological daughter
Houston: The Indian-American foster parents of Sherin Mathews, the three-year-old Indian girl who was found dead in a culvert in Dallas, on Saturday relinquished custody and parental rights to their biological child.
In a custody hearing, Wesley and Sini Mathews stood in shackles before a judge and agreed to relinquish
their parental rights - an irrevocable decision, Dallas News reported.
Sherin went missing on October 7 and her body was found on October 22 in a culvert in suburban Dallas by a cadaver dog after an intense search.
Her body was identified days later.
Wesley, 37, has been charged with capital murder in Sherin's death.
Sini, 35, was arrested on a charge of child abandonment or endangerment based on her husband's admission to investigators that they went
out to dinner and left Sherin alone the night before she died.
