Texas mother charged in deaths of toddlers left in hot car

Texas mother charged in deaths of toddlers left in hot car

Cynthia Randolph was jailed Friday on two counts of causing serious bodily harm to a child.

Randolph repeatedly changed her story under questioning and told a Texas Ranger on Friday that she had found Juliet and Cavanaugh playing inside the vehicle, the sheriff's office said in a statement.

"When they refused to exit, Randolph told police she shut the vehicle door to teach Juliet a lesson, thinking she could get herself and her brother out of the auto when ready", a probable cause affidavit for the incident stated. She told the Parker County police she had wanted to teach her daughter a lesson for disobeying her.

Randolph went inside the house, smoked marijuana and took a nap for two or three hours. She said she thought her daughter would be able to open the auto door and get out whenever she and her brother wanted to leave the vehicle.

A woman from Parker County, Texas, who tried to frame the deaths of her two young children in a hot auto in May as an accident has admitted that she left them in the vehicle to teach them "a lesson".

Police said Randolph changed her story several times before admitting fault in her the kids' tragic deaths.

Tesla crash: driver ignored warnings, investigators find
The driver and sole occupant of the Tesla died in the crash; the commercial truck driver was not injured. The NTSB probes only a handful of highway accidents each year in search of broad safety lessons.

Sheriff's deputies were called to a residence in the 200 block of Rambling Loop, in unincorporated Parker County west of Lake Weatherford, where Randolph told detectives that she found her two children unresponsive after being locked inside a vehicle.

Temperatures reportedly reached the mid 90's the day of the incident.

Randolph initially said she was inside her home folding laundry and watching TV while her kids played in an enclosed back porch that was visible from the living room.

Randolph has been booked into the Parker Country Jail.

No bond has been set yet for Randolph, and it is not clear whether she has an attorney.

A ruling on the cause and manner of death in each child is pending, according to the medical examiner's website.
