The father of a 3-year-old Texas girl, who had initially declared his daughter missing, has admitted to forcing milk down his daughter's throat until she started choking and later died, police said Tuesday.

NBC 5 reports Matthews and his attorney went to the Richardson Police Station and, after a long conversation with police, was placed under arrest. His bond was set at $1 million.

The body was discovered by officers and search dogs examining a culvert near Spring Valley and Bowser roads, less than a mile from the family's home in the suburb of 100,000 about 15 miles north of Dallas.

At this time, a positive identification has not been made.

Police said medical examiners used dental records to identify the body and confirmed it was that of missing Indian girl. The 3-year-old began to choke. He later said she choked on milk and he disposed of her body after she died.

Wesley Mathews, 37, arrested for suspected child endangerment.

Eventually, she began to drink the milk and Mathews "physically assisted" her in drinking it. Rafael De La Garza, an attorney for Wesley Mathews, told The Dallas Morning News after Monday's hearing that his client was "mourning the death of his child", but he didn't address the criminal charges.

Since the discovery of a child's body by police on Sunday, which they believe to be that of Sherin, her father has been re-arrested and charged with a further felony offense.

When asked Monday evening if Wesley Mathews' new account to police included any changes to what his wife was doing at the time, Perlich would not provide details.
