The Texas mom charged in the death of her young daughters allegedly told friends to ignore the cries coming from her car, saying the children would eventually tire themselves out, according to reports.
Amanda Hawkins, 19, is accused of leaving her children, ages 1 and 2, in her car for at least 15 hours as she spent time at a friend's home. The girls eventually both died.
The vehicle’s windows were rolled up as temperatures dipped into the 60s overnight. But by noon the next day, temperatures had climbed to about 85 degrees — the humidity made it feel like 105 degrees — and the girls were left without food, water or anywhere to use the bathroom
At one point Tuesday, someone inside the home allegedly heard the girls crying and asked Hawkins to bring them in. “She said: ‘No, it’s fine. They’ll cry themselves to sleep”
