Texas mom says she locked 2 kids in hot auto, killing them


A Texas mother has been arrested for the deaths of her two toddlers who she said were left in a hot auto to teach the older child a lesson while the woman smoked marijuana and took a nap, authorities said.

Cynthia Marie Randolph, 25, faces charges of first-degree felony counts of injury to a child causing serious bodily injury, according to Parker County Sheriff's investigators.

Police said Cynthia Randolph was trying to teach her two-year-old toddler daughter Juliet Ramirez a lesson for not coming out of the vehicle when she was the called, when Juliet and her 16-month-old brother Cavanaugh Ramirez died. Randolph further told investigators that she broke the auto window so that it would look like an accident, police said. According to NBC Dallas-Fort Worth, temperatures reached 96 degrees that day.

She has been jailed.

Be Civil - It's OK to have a difference in opinion but there's no need to be a jerk.

Those children died last month.

The incident happened on May 26, when Randolph's 2-year-old daughter, Juliet, and 1-year-old son, Cavanaugh, were found dead in a locked auto in the driveway of her home outside of Fort Worth, police said.




Randolph initially reported the children entered the vehicle on their own and had locked themselves inside, authorities said. She said she found the kids in the auto, that they had locked themselves inside and that she broke the vehicle window in an attempt to save them.

The Texas mom is now in custody at Park County Jail.

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

Around 4:30 p.m., medical responders who had arrived pronounced her children dead.

Throughout multiple interviews, police say Randolph changed her story several times about what lead to the death of 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.
