Story Highlights After sitter canceled, mother left 2 children in hot car with fans, food, drinks She worked 8 hours, then she said she had to leave due to child-care issues A day later, police found her at her apartment wailing, "Oh, my babies!" The children's bodies, bathed and dressed, were found wrapped in trash bags According to her employer, she didn't tell the supervisor or a co-worker that for all that time, she had left her 1-year-old daughter and 4-year-old son in her Chevy Cavalier hatchback, parked on a residential street. She had left Triniti and Shawn with battery-powered fans, food and drinks, but it was not nearly enough to combat the sweltering conditions inside. She later told relatives that when she got to the car at 11:30 p.m., the children were unconscious and had weak pulses. A day later, police found her at her apartment wailing, "Oh, my babies!" Officers said in a police report that she tried to kick and bite them and asked them to kill her. The bodies of the children, bathed and dressed, were found wrapped in trash bags and stuffed under the sink. Her lawyer, Andy Savage, said he hopes a mental evaluation will shed light on what happened. "Neighbors see her as a great mother. This isn't a woman who beat her kids," he said. "Suppose she went to work that night and left them at home. Would that have been better?" http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/08/04/toddlers.carolina.ap/index.html Jesus Christ, what is wrong with people? who in the fuck would leave a 1 and a 4 year old in a car while they worked a double? Common sense has to kick in somewhere. The statement the Attorney made wasn't any better.
