Authorities: Texas mom left 2 kids in hot car as punishment

Randolph was arrested and is facing two first-degree felony counts of injury to a child causing serious bodily injury.

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

The suspect allegedly told her children, 16-month-old Cavanaugh Ramirez and 2-year-old Juliet Ramirez, to get out of the vehicle and they refused. She told the Parker County police she had wanted to teach her daughter a lesson for disobeying her. Randolph then told investigators she went into her home, smoked marijuana and went to sleep for two to three hours.

The incident happened in late May, when she initially told police the children locked themselves inside the auto. "The defendant said that she broke the auto window to make it look like an accident".

Parker County Sheriff's investigators arrested Cynthia Marie Randolph, 25, in connection with the death of her two children, a 16-month-old boy and a 2-year-old girl.

At the time, for reasons not necessarily understood the mother believed her children would leave the vehicle on their own when "they were ready". Through multiple interviews with investigators over the past month, Randolph "created several variations of the events" of May 26, police said.

She called police, saying she found the children unresponsive.

Randolph told investigators that shortly after noon on the day of the deaths, she found the kids inside the auto and, using profanity, ordered the girl out.

Bond has not been set for Randolph, who is being held at Park County Jail. Randolph later said she broke the window of the vehicle to make it look like an accident.

Those children died last month.

On that day, it was about 96 degrees in the area, according to the Dallas Morning News. According to the data, an average of 37 children die in hot cars annually in the United States. This bill requires all new cars to come equipped with a device that alerts the owner of the vehicle if the child is left behind after the auto is shut off.
