A Texas mother whose two young children died in a hot car while she partied inside a shed was sentenced to 40 years in prison on Wednesday.

Instead, the girls’ mother intentionally left them in her car overnight while she partied with friends, according to Hill Country Breaking News.

That evening, someone heard the girls crying in the car and asked Hawkins to bring them inside.

In a statement, police said Hawkins was initially reluctant to drive the children to the hospital because “she did not want to get in trouble.”.

“Those precious little girls would still be here today if this had not happened,” Judge Keith Williams told Hawkins during the trial.

Judge Williams imposed four sentences of 20 years each, with two sets running concurrently, bringing her total sentence to 40 years.

Franke was charged as an adult in July with two counts of felony murder in the deaths of the children. »

Male eggs are processed into animal feed, leaving only female chicks to hatch at the end of a 21-day incubation period.

An estimated 4-6 billion male chicks are slaughtered globally every year because they serve no economic purpose.

Male chicks lay no eggs and don’t grow fast enough to justify the cost of feeding them up for meat. »
