Kerr County girls die after mom left them in auto, sheriff says

Two toddler sisters died after their mother intentionally left them in a auto for more than 15 hours, law enforcement officials said on Friday.

Two Texas toddlers died after being left in a hot auto intentionally for hours by their teenage mom who ignored their cries and then lied to investigators about what happened, authorities said.

The following day when Hawkins discovered her daughters, officials said she tried to bath them and failed to immediately seek care "because she did not want to get in trouble".

He said the children were unconscious when Hawkins took them out of the auto and she didn't immediately take them to the hospital because she "did not want to get into trouble". The charges against Hawkins could be upgraded in light of the girls' deaths, and police have also said additional charges could be brought against others. She told them the girls were smelling flowers there and then suddenly collapsed.

Around 5 p.m. the next day, they were taken off ventilator systems and died, Fox San Antonio reported.

Mary Walker, a spokesperson for the state's Child Protective Services, confirmed the agency investigated Amanda Hawkins and her husband, Isaac Hawkins, Brynn's father, in September a year ago, but said she couldn't discuss any details or the outcome of that investigation.

An investigation by the police and child protective services found that Hawkins had intentionally left the girls overnight in her vehicle while at a friend's.

"One of them even told her they could hear the kids crying out in the vehicle and told her to bring them in", Hierholzer told KSAT. Hawkins is being held at the Bexar County Adult Detention Center in San Antonio while awaiting transfer to Kerr County, according to the statement. Kerrville is located about 65 miles northwest of San Antonio. Addyson, who was two years old at the time is pictured here.

If found guilty under the present charges, Hawkins could face up to two years in prison.

The Kerr County Sheriff's Office says Amanda Kristine Hawkins took Addyson Overgard-Eddy, 2, and Brynn Hawkins, 1, to the hospital Wednesday. 'I don't agree with what happened, what she did, but I love my daughter.

Autopsies were scheduled for Friday.
