Weather delays attorney's push for records in Frisco boy's death

Posted: Updated:

The attorney of a Frisco woman accused of killing her 10-year-old son tried to file a motion in court Thursday to see what records Frisco Police are holding, but his attempt was deterred by weather issues.

Former judge David Finn was going to file a motion to get a copy of the probable cause affidavit against the woman, Pallavi Dhawan, including a list of what was taken from her home where police had executed a search warrant.

However, Thursday's winter weather closed all government offices in Collin County.

Finn says that Frisco Police said the affidavit package, including the search warrant, are sealed.

Former prosecutor Barry Sorrells, now a defense attorney, said that it's unusual that the documents are sealed, but the law does allow for what law enforcement knows or has to be kept secret for a certain period of time.  

Sorrells says while the move it is legal to do, it doesn't happen often.

Police charged Pallavi with murder and said she confessed with a nod of her head to killing her son Arnav, who was found dead in a bathtub at the Dhawans' home.

Wednesday night, more than 100 people gathered for a candlelight vigil at the family's Frisco home.

Pallavi and her husband, Sumeet Dhawan, returned to the home for the vigil for the first time since Arnav died.
