Two Children Dead After Parker County Mother Left Them in Hot Car to Teach Them A Lesson

PARKER COUNTY, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - The mother of two children found dead in a locked hot car has been charged in connection to the case.

Last month, two children were found dead after being locked in a hot car in Parker County, Texas. Now the mother, 25-year-old Cynthia Marie Randolph, has been charged with two first-degree felony counts of Injury to a Child Causing Serious Bodily Injury, according to NBCDFW 5.

Two-year-old Juliet Ramirez and 16-month-old Cavanaugh Ramirez were found deceased on May 26.

According to NBCDFW 5, Randolph initially told the sheriff's office that the children had been playing inside, but when she couldn't find them she searched the property until they were found locked in the car.

After creating several variations of the events, Randolph finally implicated herself on Friday.

According to the sheriff's office, Randolph found her children playing in her car and attempted to order them out with profanity.  The daughter refused, so Randolph shut the door and believed "she could get herself and her brother out of the car when ready."

Randolph then allegedly went inside, smoked some marijuana and fell asleep for a few hours.

She later broke the car window to make it appear like an accident.

Randolph's bond has not yet been set.
