Hearing reset, Frisco family's SUV not returned

Posted: Updated:
FRISCO, Texas - A hearing to determine if police should return a Frisco family's vehicle was rescheduled because the Collin County District Attorney's Office said it was not ready.

Sumeet and Pallavi Dhawan showed up for the hearing Tuesday morning. They want the Frisco Police Department to give them back their SUV, which was taken during the course of a murder investigation.

But no one from the DA's office showed up in court. Prosecutors said they didn't receive a notice about the hearing's date.  

Judge Scott Becker agreed to reschedule the proceedings on May 22.

"There's just a question as to who got notice. There's been so many different people involved in this case I'm not sure if they knew or not. Clearly, we were here. But I think the judge did the right thing in the abundance of caution, giving them a second chance to get their ducks in a row," said former Judge David Finn, the Dhawans' attorney.

It's been three months since Pallavi Dhawan was charged with killing her 10-year-old son, Arnav.  

He was found dead in the family's home and police said his mother confessed to killing him, but the family believes he died because of a medical condition.

The medical examiner could not determine his exact cause of death.

The case has still not gone to a Collin County grand jury.
