    The adoptive mother of Sherin Mathews will return to district court in Dallas on Monday in hopes of regaining custody of her biological daughter.

    Sini Mathews will ‘likely testify’ during the court hearing on a limited basis, according to her attorney Mitchell R. Nolte.

    Mathews’ four-year-old biological daughter has been in foster care since shortly after Sherin’s disappearance on Oct. 7.

    The 3-year-old’s body was found more than two weeks later, inside of a culvert less than a mile from the family’s home in Richardson.

    Wesley Mathews, Sherin’s adoptive father, remains in Dallas County Jail on $1 million bond in connection with Sherin’s disappearance and death.

    Mathews told police he was making Sherin drink milk in their garage when she began to choke and died. Mathews then admitted to removing the girl’s body from the home.

    Sini Mathews has never been arrested or charged in Sherin’s disappearance or death.

    Child Protective Services previously told NBC 5 that it is possible that a CPS-approved family member could take custody of the 4-year-old girl.

    Currently, Sini is able to see her daughter once a week.

    NBC 5 will be in court for the hearing.
