Parker County Mother Charged in Deaths of Children Found in Hot Car

She was charged with two felonies for causing serious injury to a child.

The incident occurred near Lake Weatherford, Texas, located about an hour west of Fort Worth.

Randolph repeatedly changed her story under questioning and told a Texas Ranger on Friday that she had found Juliet and Cavanaugh playing inside the vehicle, the sheriff's office said in a statement.

The sheriff's office said "throughout multiple interviews, Randolph created several variations of the events which led to the death of her children".

All the more shocking are the allegations that 24-year-old Cynthia Randolph locked 1-year old Cavanaugh Ramirez and 2-year old Juliet Ramirez in the vehicle last month in order to teach the little girl "a lesson".

London towers being evacuated over fire safety fears
Documents and materials have been seized from a number of organisations as part of this process, the police said. When speaking about the 79 people dead, presumed dead or missing, McCormack said: "I fear that there are more".

A report via wfaa told of the mother putting the children inside the auto before going inside the family home and smoking marijuana before taking a nap for two to three hours. Temperatures reached 96 degrees Fahrenheit that day.

"Please send a thank you to [the] Parker County Sheriff's Office and the Texas Rangers from the Ramirez family", the children's father said in a statement to CBS DFW.

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

She has also admitted that she broke the auto window to make the deaths look like an accident, the release says.

Authorities later determined that the children died from extreme heat exposure.

Record 65.6 million people displaced worldwide
South Sudan has the fastest-growing displaced population in the world after peace efforts in the country fizzled out in July. Unaccompanied or separated children - mainly Afghans and Syrians - lodged some 75,000 applications in 70 countries in 2016.

She looked into the room they had been playing and noticed they were gone.

At the time she said the kids were exposed to extreme temperatures in the auto for "no more than an hour". She claimed that she broke one of the car's windows to try to save them.

Both were pronounced dead at about 4:30pm local time (10:30pm BST) on 26 May. She then fell asleep for between two and three hours.

No bond has been set for Cynthia Marie Randolph.
