Mom left toddlers in hot vehicle to teach a 'lesson'

After noticing the children were missing, Randolph told officers she found them unresponsive in a locked auto and broke a window to rescue them.

Randolph will be charged with two counts of causing serious bodily injury to a child. Their mother, Cynthia Marie Randolph, 24, originally told authorities the two children disappeared while she was performing household duties and she found them locked in the auto.

When she told them to get out and they refused, Randolph "shut the vehicle door to teach Juliet a lesson, thinking she could get herself and her brother out of the auto when ready", the statement said.

Randolph said she wanted to teach her daughter a "lesson", and thought her daughter "could get herself and her brother out of the auto when ready", officials said. Police said that the temperature outside on that day was about 35.5C.

According to documents from the Parker County Sheriff's Department, the mum initially told the police that she had made an attempt to save her children. In a panic, Randolph broke a window to make the scene look like an accident. The mother was said to have explained that she believed the children would be able to let themselves out of the auto. The website noheatstroke.org says humans enter heat stroke - a potentially fatal condition - at 104 degrees.

The 24-year-old mother also said that after finding them she had broken a auto window to try to save them.

During multiple interviews, however, Randolph's account of what happened kept changing, officials said. She fell asleep for two or three hours. She even broke the window to rescue them.

The children were pronounced dead at around 16:30, which was four hours after they had been left in the auto. At that point she found her children dead in the vehicle; she says she broke a window to make it look like an accident. A bond has not been set, and we don't know whether or not she's hired an attorney.
