Texas mom charged in deaths of 2 children found in hot car

The two young children - a 2-year-old girl and a 16-month-old boy - were found dead in Parker County, Texas on May 26.

Temperatures reached approximately 96 degrees that day.

Randolph confessed to police that around she found her children playing inside her auto around noon and ordered her daughter out of the vehicle using profanity.




When the deputies initially spoke to Randolph, she told them she was busy folding laundry and watching television and they were playing in the enclosed back porch when she saw they had disappeared. She claimed they had entered the auto on their own and locked themselves in, then said she broke one of the vehicle windows in an attempt to save the kids. She looked into the room they had been playing and noticed they were "gone".

Randolph faces two first-degree felony counts of injury to a child causing serious bodily injury.

On Friday, the Texas Rangers and a Dallas-based senior federal special agent conducted a final interview with Randolph, where she implicated herself in her children's deaths. She was booked into the Parker County Jail.
