Randolph faces two first-degree felony counts of injury to a child causing serious bodily injury.
The incident transpired on Friday, May 26th, when the dead bodies of 2-year-old Juliet and 16-month-old Cavanaugh were discovered in a locked vehicle parked in the driveway of her home outside of Fort Worth. Even though, my mom could be completely nuts, she would never try to teach my brother and I a lesson by leaving us defenseless in a hot locked vehicle.
Randolph told investigators that she then went back into her home, smoked marijuana and slept for two to three hours.
Randolph initially told investigators that the children had disappeared from an enclosed porch while she was folding laundry, and somehow managed to lock themselves inside the vehicle.
"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.

But when she was arrested Friday, police said Randolph admitted to officers that she locked the children inside the vehicle on objective.
She told investigators that she found the kids playing in the auto and when the 2-year-old refused to get out, she shut the door to teach her a lesson, thinking her daughter could get herself and her brother out of the vehicle when ready. She later told investigators that she later broke the vehicle window to make it look like an accident. A sheriff's spokeswoman did not immediately return a call Saturday afternoon, and jail records do not list an attorney for Randolph.
Randolph has been booked into jail but no bail has yet been set. The children were later identified by the Tarrant County medical examiner's office as Juliet Ramirez, 2, and Cavanaugh Ramirez, 16 months. Temperatures in the area had reportedly hit 96 degrees outside the day Randolph's children died inside her auto.
When detectives were first called to the home west of Lake Weatherford on May 26, Randolph spun a different tale.
