A Highlands Ranch mother faces attempted first-degree murder charges after she tried to kill her two young children, police say.

Erin Giberti, 37, was found unconscious in a running vehicle in a garage Dec. 9, with her two children standing outside the home in the 4900 block of Laurelglen Lane, near Southridge Recreation Center. The Douglas County Sheriff's Office is not releasing any other details about the incident, other than to say the "kids were initially in the car," said spokesman Ron Hanavan.

The sheriff's office recommended four felony charges against Giberti on Dec. 19, including two counts of attempted first-degree murder of a child under 12 by a person in a position of trust. Hanavan said he believes the children did not sustain injuries.

Giberti, who was hospitalized after the incident, is in custody on a $250,000 bond.

Her Facebook page provides a glimpse into the life of someone who appears to be a typical Highlands Ranch mother. Friends and family gushed about photos Giberti posted of herself with two young boys. In a section that enables Facebook users to talk about their personal life, Giberti encouraged readers to "spend quality time with family."

Her LinkedIn profile says she works for RE/MAX as a broker and relocation specialist.
