Texas Mom Charged in Deaths of Children Found in Hot Car

However, investigators said Randolph in subsequent interviews "created several variations of the events which lead to the death of her children", and in an interview on Friday she implicated herself.

Randolph was arrested and is facing two first-degree felony counts of injury to a child causing serious bodily injury. "The defendant said that she broke the vehicle window to make it look like an accident".

The charges stem from the May 26 deaths of Randolph's 2-year-old daughter and 16-month-old son, when temperatures topped 96 degrees at the family's home in Weatherford, Texas, which is about 30 miles west of Fort Worth.

She said she realized the children were missing after about a half hour of silence and discovered them unresponsive inside the auto. When they refused to get out, she closed the door to "teach them a lesson".

A Parker County mother who told investigators that she locked her two children in a hot vehicle as punishment was arrested Friday, authorities said. She said that after a half-hour of searching, she finally spotted their bodies, unresponsive, inside her 2010 Honda Crosstour parked in her driveway. The investigators involved in the case believe Randolph was exclusively responsible for the death of her two children.

A Texas woman is charged in the deaths of her two children, after she allegedly locked them in a hot vehicle for hours on goal.

Those children died last month. She is being held at the Parker County Jail on a $200,000 bond, records show. She said that she was folding laundry and watching TV when she realized her kids were gone. Of those, three have been in North Texas, including the two Friday in Parker County. The children were later identified by the Tarrant County medical examiner's office as Juliet Ramirez, 2, and Cavanaugh Ramirez, 16 months.

When she woke, she went to check on the children and found them unresponsive.

Sheriff Fowler originally said on May 26, that any incidents involving any child are hard ones, but this call was especially heartbreaking with the unfortunate deaths of the two children.
