After she found both children unresponsive, Randolph initially claimed she broke a window of the vehicle to gain entry in an attempt to save the children, according to Texas investigators. She said when she noticed they were no longer there, she went looking for them and found them about a half-hour later locked in the vehicle.

A Parker County mother who told investigators that she locked her two children in a hot vehicle as punishment was arrested Friday, authorities said.

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

Cynthia Marie Randolph, 25, told investigators with the Parker County Sheriff's Office that she was trying to teach her 2-year-old daughter a lesson by putting in the auto with her 16-month-old brother.

She said she then went back into the home, smoked marijuana and slept for two to three hours. The temperature was close to 96 Fahrenheit (36 Celsius) and emergency personnel that Randolph had called pronounced the children dead at the scene, the court filing said.

Ms. Randolph was booked into the Parker County Jail on Friday.

The order also demands that records be kept on any foreign travel by members of Trump's transition team and presidential campaign. The tweets immediately prompted concerns among lawmakers that Trump might try to can both Mueller and Rosenstein.

Bond has not been set for Randolph, who is being held at Park County Jail.

The incident happened on May 26, when Randolph's 2-year-old daughter, Juliet, and 1-year-old son, Cavanaugh, were found dead in a locked vehicle in the driveway of her home outside of Fort Worth, police said. The children died after spending several hours in the auto.

Less than a month after the tragedy, Randolph has been arrested after her original explanation for her children's deaths unraveled. She looked into the room they had been playing and noticed they were "gone".

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

The children were identified as 1-year old Cavanaugh Ramirez, and 2-year old Juliet Ramirez.

The Dallas News reported that Randolph called Parker County deputies out to her house "in the 200 block of Rambling Loop" on May 26 following the death of her two children.
