Mother's hot vehicle lesson ends in kids' deaths

Randolph's two-year-old girl Juliet Ramirez and 16-month-old boy Cavanaugh Ramirez were found dead inside a hot vehicle on May 26.

Randolph was arrested on Friday for two counts of causing injury to a child.

Randolph initially told authorities she was folding laundry and watching TV and realized within an hour that her kids were "gone".

Investigators have since told of the Randolph's story changing several times.

Cynthia Randolph, 24, was being held on Saturday on $200,000 bail for the deaths of her 16-month-old son and 2-year-old daughter last month, Danie Huffman, a spokeswoman for the Parker County Sheriff's Office, said in an email.

As for Randolph, she made a decision to go back inside the house, smoke marijuana, and take a two or three-hour nap.

Temperatures reached the mid-90s that day.

Cynthia Marie Randolph, the toddlers' mother, was arrested on Friday in Parker County, Texas.

The youngsters were unresponsive and Randolph said she broke a window to gain entry.

She then told officers that she had to break a window and rescue the children, then called 911, authorities said.

In 2017 alone, 13 children have died from being locked inside cars and suffering heat stroke, according to San Jose State University professor Jan Null. The mother was said to have explained that she believed the children would be able to let themselves out of the auto.

The children were pronounced dead shortly after 4:30 p.m.

While many parents have accidentally left their children in hot cars that have resulted in their deaths, this case may prove to be problematic for prosecutors. She fell asleep for two or three hours.

At the time Randolph stated the kids were exposed to the extreme temperature levels in the vehicle for "no greater than an hour". She said they "took off". A bond had not been set and it wasn't immediately clear whether she retained an attorney, NBC Dallas-Fort Worth reported.
