Nanny who stabbed two children to death will be sentenced

Nanny who stabbed two children to death will be sentenced

Yoselyn Ortega had worked for Marina and Kevin Krim for two years when she killed two of their children, 6-year-old Lulu and 2-year-old Leo, on October 25, 2012.

She had been working for the Krim family for almost two years when she took the children to the back bathroom of their apartment and stabbed them to death in October 2012.

Ortega was hired by the children's' parents, Marina and Kevin Krim, in 2010, when Marina became pregnant with the couple's third child, Leo, according to evidence presented during Ortega's trial. Their father was out of town.

The lawyer argued she was too mentally ill to know what she was doing.

The prosecution said Ortega deliberately planned the murders and was motivated by financial problems and resentment of her wealthy employers.

Ortega said she wasn't feeling well but wasn't able to go to the doctor. "This defendant to this day has shown no remorse".

Mr Krim spoke often about "Team Krim", while Mrs Krim spoke out against those who recommended bringing Ortega into their family as a nanny in the first place. "We want to respond with constructive energy", Kevin Krim said in a Facebook post in April after the verdict. "Unfair to us, unfair to the world".

'Superman' actress Margot Kidder dies at age 69
The Hollywood Reporter , TMZ , the Associated Press and The New York Times all independently confirmed her death. Kidder, who starred as Lois Lane in the " Superman " film franchise of the late 1970s and early 1980s, has died.

"I ask for a great deal of forgiveness".

Over the eight-week trial, jurors were subjected to stomach-churning photos and testimony spanning the children's final moments, the family's heartbreak and Ortega's alleged descent into madness.

"There were blood curdling screams from a woman", Rima Starr, a neighbor, told the New York Times that night, adding that after hearing the screams she saw Marina in the building's lobby, with a towel over her head and Nessie, her surviving child, in her arms.

But Judge Carro was having none of it, noting that she had steadfastly refused to apologize since her 2012 heinous crime and calling her case "pure evil".

At Ortega's trial, Kevin Krim testified that when his plane landed in NY that night in October 2012, he was met by police, who escorted him to the hospital where the bodies of his dead children had been brought, along with his wife and surviving child. Ortega, a United States citizen originally from the Dominican Republic, had stabbed Lulu 30 times.

"I insist on the fact that she was aware of his actions no more than a baby or a rough wild beast, "said Ortega's lawyer , Valerie van Leer-Greenberg".

But prosecutors Stuart Silberg and Courtney Groves had contended Ortega had full knowledge of what she was doing, leaving behind her cell phone and hanging other important documents on a doorknob in the apartment she shared with her sister and son on the day of the slayings. Krim frantically tried to reach Ortega, who had worked for the family for about two years.
