Randolph is in the county jail facing two felony charges of injury to a child causing serious bodily injury, the sheriff's office said. The Tarrant County medical examiner's website identified the children as Juliet and Cavanaugh Ramirez.
A 25-year-old Weatherford, TX woman is under arrest after she killed her children by locking them in a hot vehicle for hours, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
She also stated that after she left the children in the auto with the doors shut, she went inside her residence, smoked marijuana, and after getting high, took a nap for several hours.
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. She found them in the vehicle, where they had locked themselves inside. Randolph initially told authorities the kids locked themselves in the auto while she was doing laundry.
Unfortunately, as the North Texas temperatures soared to the mid-90s and Randolph reportedly said she went inside to smoke marijuana, little Juliet was not able to escape the auto with her brother.
But when Randolph was arrested this Friday, she told a completely different tale.
Cynthia Randolph, 24, was being held on Saturday on $200,000 bail for the deaths of her 16-month-old son and 2-year-old daughter last month, Danie Huffman, a spokeswoman for the Parker County Sheriff's Office, said in an email. The woman's arrest follows that of recent Kerr County, Texas mother, Amanda Hawkins whose two children also died after being left in a hot auto as the 19 year old teen 'partied'.
She said she later broke the auto window to make it look like an accident, the sheriff's office said. The website noheatstroke.org says humans enter heat stroke - a potentially fatal condition - at 104 degrees.
