WEATHERFORD, Texas (AP) - Authorities say a Texas woman told investigators that she left her 2-year-old daughter and 16-month-old son in a hot car where they died last month to teach the girl a lesson and that they didn't lock themselves in, as she initially said. Twenty-four-year-old Cynthia Marie Randolph was jailed Friday on two counts of causing serious bodily harm to a child.

TEMPLE, Texas (AP) - A young girl has died and her father had his legs amputated after they were struck by a boat on a Central Texas lake. Temple police said in a statement Saturday that 4-year-old Katlyn Oliver died about an hour after suffering severe lacerations from the propeller of a craft described by authorities as a recreational house boat. Police say the boat struck both Katlyn and her 37-year-old father Friday evening at Temple Lake Park.

HOUSTON (AP) - Police say a 7-month-old boy has died after he was left in a car outside a Houston business while his father was inside working. Authorities say the infant's 36-year-old father had dropped off two of his three children at a day care Friday and then went to work. The boy normally was left with a baby sitter and the man's wife called him at the end of the workday inquiring where the child was.

HOUSTON (AP) - Another round of rain is engulfing much of Texas, swelling rivers, flooding streets and bringing warnings of flash flooding in several areas. Up to 5 inches of rain, more in isolated areas, fell Saturday in the Houston metro region but the storm system covered a stretch of the state extending from West Texas into North and East Texas.
