Texas mother charged in deaths of toddlers left in hot car

Texas mother charged in deaths of toddlers left in hot car

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

Cynthia Marie Randolph, 25, told investigators with the Parker County Sheriff's Office that she was trying to teach her 2-year-old daughter a lesson by putting in the vehicle with her 16-month-old brother.

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

She said that day she found the children playing inside the auto and told her daughter to get out.

Randolph has been jailed and no bail has been set.

On that day, it was about 96 degrees in the area, according to the Dallas Morning News. She claimed they had entered the auto on their own and locked themselves in, then said she broke one of the vehicle windows in an attempt to save the kids.

It happened May 26 in Parker County when the mother found her children playing inside the auto, according to the Parker County Sheriff's Office.




Both kids were pronounced dead at about 4:30 p.m., according to FOX4.

The incident transpired on Friday, May 26th, when the dead bodies of 2-year-old Juliet and 16-month-old Cavanaugh were discovered in a locked auto parked in the driveway of her home outside of Fort Worth.

She told responders she'd been folding laundry while her children played outside.

A report via wfaa told of the mother putting the children inside the vehicle before going inside the family home and smoking marijuana before taking a nap for two to three hours. The children were unresponsive and Randolph said she broke a window to gain entry. The Tarrant County medical examiner's office has not yet ruled on the manner and cause of each child's death.

But on Friday, the story changed. She took a nap lasting two to three hours, before she went back outside to check on her children.

Fowler said that any incidents involving any child are hard ones, but this call was especially heartbreaking because of the unfortunate deaths of the two children.
