South Carolina — A woman accused of leaving her two young children in a hot car while she was at work was charged with homicide by child abuse after their bodies were found wrapped in trash bags under an apartment sink, authorities said Tuesday. Officers investigating a report of a disturbance at the apartment Monday night found Sametta Heyward, 27, crying and yelling, “‘Oh, my babies,”’ according to a police report. A man holding Heyward told officers “the kids were in trash bags and under the cabinet.” The police report said Heyward tried to bite and kick the officers, had to be restrained and was taken to a hospital because medics thought she could be having seizures. “She stated she wanted to die and asked officers to kill her,” the report said. Investigators found a note Heyward left at her apartment, explaining that she had arranged for a baby sitter, but when plans fell through she took the children with her in the car to work in downtown Charleston, Berkeley County Deputy Coroner George Oliver said.

That is so sad, when are people gonna realize that leaving children in the car (especially in the hot summer heat) is not the answer to a not having a babysitter situation. SMH.
