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 vehicle for hours.

Cynthia Marie Randolph, 24, was arrested Friday on two counts of causing injury to a child. She's now booked into the Parker County Jail with bond sent at $100,000.

Be Civil - It's OK to have a difference in opinion but there's no need to be a jerk.

Authorities were called to the home at about 4 p.m. when the mother said she had discovered them unresponsive in the vehicle.

Over the past two decades, more than 700 children have died of heatstroke while in hot cars, said Jan Null, a meteorologist who compiles and keeps track of the data on noheatstroke.org.

It happened May 26 in Parker County when the mother found her children playing inside the vehicle, according to the Parker County Sheriff's Office.

Randolph had originally told investigators that she had been folding laundry and watching television in her rural home west of Fort Worth while the boy, Cavanaugh Ramirez, and his sister Juliet Ramirez played in a back porch, according to a criminal complaint. She said that she broke the window in an attempt to rescue her children and called 911.

Parker County Sheriff's Capt. Mark Arnett told CNN that according to the mother, the children were playing in a back room of their home when they disappeared.

The Texas mom is now in custody at Park County Jail.

Randolph was apparently literally exhausted of parenting because she smoked marijuana and took a nap reportedly for two to three hours while her two young children were baking in her vehicle on May 26.

A ruling on the cause and manner of death in each child is pending, according to the medical examiner's website.

They were pronounced dead just after 4:30 p.m.

In multiple interviews, officials say Randolph created several variations of the events.
