Texas mom arrested after 2 children die in hot car during ‘lesson

The charges stem from the May 26 deaths of Randolph's 2-year-old daughter and 16-month-old son, when temperatures topped 96 degrees at the family's home in Weatherford, Texas, which is about 30 miles west of Fort Worth.

Twenty-four-year-old Cynthia Marie Randolph was jailed Friday on two counts of causing serious bodily harm to a child.

Officials say Randolph left the children in the auto to teach them a lesson, after she found the two playing in the vehicle. After being ignored by the girl, Randolph shut the door, went inside, smoked marijuana and then took a two to three-hour nap, according to the newspaper. Her bond had not been set as of late Friday.

The children were later found dead, locked inside the vehicle.

Authorities said Randolph initially told officers that she had been folding laundry in the house while her children played outside.

As for the "regularization" deadline for citizens that have not secured the five-year residence, a two-year "grace period" is on the table.

According to the Parker County Sheriff's Office, when asked how long the children might have been exposed to the high temperatures inside the vehicle, Randolph responded immediately: "No more than an hour".

In Randolph's initial statements, the sheriff's office told NBC 5, she said the two children had been playing and when she couldn't find them in the house, she started searching the property, eventually locating them in the vehicle.

She said that day she found the children playing inside the vehicle and told her daughter to get out. Both kids were pronounced dead shortly after 4:30 p.m. The Tarrant County medical examiner's office has not yet ruled on the manner and cause of each child's death.

"When she woke, the defendant found her children in her vehicle, unresponsive", authorities added.

In later interviews with Randolph, the sheriff's department said she "created several variations of the events which led to the death of her children", according to the Dallas Morning News.
