WEATHERFORD, Texas (AP) - Texas authorities say a 25-year-old woman has been charged in the deaths of her two children found inside a hot car last month outside the family's home. Deputies in Parker County in North Texas say Cynthia Marie Randolph initially said her 2-year-old daughter and 16-month-old son locked themselves in the car, but acknowledged to investigators on Friday that she did so on May 26 to teach her daughter a lesson after she found the two playing in the vehicle.

RENO, Texas (AP) - A 21-year-old North Texas woman is jailed on charges of injury to a child after authorities say she was messaging on Facebook rather than focusing on her 8-month-old daughter in a filling bathtub where the baby drowned. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports three other small children of Cheyenne Summer Stuckey are in the care of state child welfare officials after the death earlier this month of her daughter, Zayla Hernandez.

WACO, Texas (AP) - A 24-year-old actress from the Oscar-nominated movie "Boyhood" has been given a three-year deferred sentence for a drug possession charge in Texas. Lorelei Grace Linklater will have no conviction on her record if she completes her probation successfully under sentencing terms. She was arrested in May 2016 on Interstate 35 near Waco after her car collided with another vehicle. Troopers found loose pills in her car and a bag in her purse that later was determined to contain cocaine.

(AP) - A New Jersey university is remembering the 50th anniversary of the Cold War summit it hosted in Glassboro between President Lyndon Johnson and Soviet Premier Alexi Kosygin. The two leaders met at the college president's mansion and discussed the Mideast conflict, arms control and the Vietnam War. Historians and others observe the anniversary Saturday with tours at Rowan University, memorabilia displays and a dinner featuring dishes from the summit menu.
