Why is she only charged with aggravated child abuse???
SMYRNA, Tenn.- The mother of the two children found dead inside a car in a driveway at a home on Old Nashville Highway has been arrested.
Officials were called out to the home just before 4 p.m. Thursday. Smyrna Police Sgt. Bobby Gibson said when officers arrived at the home the two children were found lying outside the car. It appeared as though the deceased children had been pulled out from the car, but officers were unsure who might have tried to rescue the children.
Police officials said that the children, a two-year-old girl and three-year-old boy appeared to have died from heat stroke. Sgt. Gibson said the children were trapped inside a car for an undetermined amount of time.
"It doesn't take a lot of time before it can become a deadly situation for someone trapped inside a car," said Smyrna Police Sgt. Gibson.
The children's mother Samantha Harper was charged with two counts of especially aggravated child abuse.
Old Nashville Highway in front of the home was closed for nearly a mile in each direction while officers investigated the scene.
