SALT LAKE CITY -- A woman accused of trying to kill her elderly parents has waived her right to a preliminary hearing.

Prosecutors say Gretchen Bloyer left her father's car running in the garage of her parents' home for more than six hours, hoping the resulting carbon monoxoide emissions would kill them.

They were saved when Bloyer called her sister to confess what she had done and ask if the sister would go check on their parents.

Before the murder attempt, Bloyer had been living with her parents and caring for them.

The Deseret News reports Bloyer will be in court again next month.
