Now, authorities are claiming that a north Texas mom by the name of Cynthia Marie Randolph left her 2-year-old daughter and 16-month-old son alone in a hot auto for hours.

Police said Cynthia Randolph was trying to teach her two-year-old toddler daughter Juliet Ramirez a lesson for not coming out of the vehicle when she was the called, when Juliet and her 16-month-old brother Cavanaugh Ramirez died.

At the time, for reasons not necessarily understood the mother believed her children would leave the auto on their own when "they were ready".

At the time, the temperature outside was hovering around 96 degrees.

Cynthia Marie Randolph, 24, was charged Friday with two first-degree felony counts of injury to a child causing serious bodily injury. She said that she was folding laundry and watching TV when she realized her kids were gone.

She then broke the auto window to make it look like the children had locked themselves inside, and she was trying to rescue them.

She said that about 12:15 p.m. that day, she had found the children playing inside the vehicle and ordered her daughter out of the auto, using profanity.

But when she was arrested Friday, police said Randolph admitted to officers that she locked the children inside the auto on goal. Police say she admitted she left her kids in the vehicle to "teach them a lesson". The children were unresponsive and Randolph said she broke a window to gain entry. Randolph then told investigators she went into her home, smoked marijuana and went to sleep for two to three hours.

Online jail records don't list an attorney for her. She said that she broke the window in an attempt to rescue her children and called 911.

Around 4:30 p.m., medical responders who had arrived pronounced her children dead.

Randolph was arrested after several subsequent interviews and an extensive investigation conducted by sheriff's investigators with the assistance of the Texas Rangers, the release said.
