My sister died 140 years ago

A Judge asked the suspect of a minor crime in court:

“Do you have any brothers and sisters?”
The suspect told the Judge:
“No, your honor, my only sister died 140 years ago.”
The Judge replied:
“That can’t be right.”
“Oh yes, your honor, it is true.” said the suspect.
“You see, my father married when he was 20 years old. From that marriage he got a daughter, who sadly died only a couple of days after she was born. When my father was 62, his wife died. He married for the second time and 4 years later I was born. I’m now 94, your honor.”
