Mom left 2 kids in hot car as punishment, Texas police say

Mom left 2 kids in hot car as punishment, Texas police say

She is charged with two first-degree felony counts of injury to a child causing serious bodily injury, according to the Dallas Morning News. She said when she noticed they were no longer there, she went looking for them and found them about a half-hour later locked in the auto.

When she told them to get out and they refused, Randolph "shut the auto door to teach Juliet a lesson, thinking she could get herself and her brother out of the vehicle when ready", the statement said. Authorities say that the suspect admitted to locking the toddlers inside her vehicle on objective to teach them a lesson. She says she thought they'd be able to get themselves out, so she went back to inside to smoke weed and fell asleep for hours.

The 25-year-old told investigators she'd been trying to teach her two-year-old daughter a lesson when she refused to come out of the vehicle when she was called.

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 auto with her 16-month-old brother. She thought the child could get herself and her brother out of the vehicle when they were ready, according to the Dallas Morning News.

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

Randolph has been booked into jail but no bail has yet been set.

She then told officers that she had to break a window and rescue the children, then called 911, authorities said. Temperatures reached 96 degrees Fahrenheit that day.

Authorities said Randolph initially told officers that she had been folding laundry in the house while her children played outside. Of those, three have been in North Texas, including the two Friday in Parker County.

Police have arrested a Texas mother after she allegedly left her two young children in a hot auto as a form of punishment in late May.

A ruling on the cause and manner of death in each child is pending, according to the medical examiner's website.
