It overheated due to belt loss. Is one of the belt driven accessories locked up? This will slow cranking down and I have seen cars not start due to this. Try to start with belt removed.
If still no start, then you need to check for fuel and spark.

Check the serpentine belt. The belt runs the alternator, water pump and power steering. Make sure the belt is on right and all the accessory like the water pump and alternator is spinning in the direction there supost to be. There should be a sticker under the hood or on the radiator shroud to how the belt is routed through the pulleys. Good luck and keep me posted.

Check the crank sensor probably when you replaced the timing belt you could have either not put the crank signal ring in correctly or damaged the crank sensor.
