Sini Mathews, the adoptive mother of deceased Texas girl, Sherin Mathews, remained in jail on Thanksgiving after being arrested a week ago and charged with child endangerment. Her request for a bond reduction will take place during a court hearing on Monday.
Mathews was arrested just last week, accused of leaving Sherin, 3, alone at home while she and her husband, Wesley Mathews, went out to dinner with their 4-year-old biological daughter. The outing allegedly took place on October 6, the night before Sherin was reported missing, according to the Dallas Morning News.
An arrest affidavit states that cell phone records obtained by police show that Sini and Wesley were at the restaurant at the time Wesley indicated, reports WFAA Dallas. Their restaurant receipt also indicates the family ordered just one child’s meal, which was confirmed by their server.
