The children were later found dead locked inside the vehicle.
Randolph was charged with two counts of first-degree felony for injury to a child causing serious bodily injury and is being kept at Parker County Jail with a $200,000 bond. The Lake Weatherforld, #Texas mother is now being held in the Parker County Jail.
But her account of that day changed and on Friday she told cops she left the tots in the vehicle intentionally, the Parker County Sheriff's Office said in a news release.
After extensive interviews with police, investigators determined that Randolph actually intentionally left the children in the auto to teach young Juliet a lesson.
Randolph then went inside and smoked marijuana before falling asleep for two or three hours.
According to records, Randolph is now held at the Parker County Jail on a bond of $200,000.
The police said it was later she admitted to locking the children inside the auto on goal.
The state of Texas has had 121 heat-related deaths of young children left in vehicles since 1990, more than any other US state, according to KidAndCars.org and Star-Telegram researchers. The children died after spending several hours in the vehicle.
In documents released Friday, the Parker County Sheriff's Department used Randolph's alleged shifting statements about how her children died as probable cause to charge her. Randolph implicated herself again when she told investigators she later broke the vehicle window to make it look like an accident.
The children were pronounced dead about a half-hour after authorities were notified. When she awoke, she called the police and claimed she "found them unresponsive in the auto", the local NBC affiliate reported. Randolph said she had been folding laundry and watching television in her rural home west of Fort Worth while the two played in a back porch.
