Sentencing Underway For Nanny In Killing Of 2 Children


Ortega, who's from the Dominican Republic, had been recommended by her sister, a nanny for another NY family, and her background and references were faked by her family.

The parents of two small children whose nanny stabbed them to death at their New York City home say she is "an evil and utterly unsafe narcissist" who deserves her sentence of life in prison without parole. "It is right that she should live and rot and die in a metal case, like the ugly and dark shadow of Lulu and Leo's bright and shiny lights". Krim had come home with the children's 3-year-old sister, Nessie, after Ortega failed to show up with the children at Lulu's dance lesson.

Speaking in Spanish through a translator, she said she was "sorry for everything", adding that she hoped for "a great deal of forgiveness".

Ortega had stabbed herself in the neck before police arrived.

"My client is severely ill, she is psychotic", Valerie Van Leer-Greenberg said, appealing for her to be placed in protective custody.

The judge calls Ortega "pure evil".

A New York Nanny convicted of killing two children under her care was sentenced to life in prison without parole Monday.

Yoselyn Ortega (YOH'-sih-lihn ohr-TAY'-guh) was convicted last month in the deaths of 6-year-old Lucia Krim and 2-year-old Leo Krim and was sentenced Monday.

She wept and apologized to the family. The children's mother found them in a bathroom.

At trial, the DA's team said the nanny knew what she was doing.

Ortega was also struggling to pay tuition fees for her 17-year-old son, whom she had brought to the United States from the Dominican Republic and enrolled in a private school.

"She tried to destroy what Kevin and I set out to build, a happy family", said Marina Krim.

Prosecutors said the nanny was disgruntled because she felt she was being overworked by the family at the Upper West Side apartment.

Kevin Krim, the father of the children Ortega murdered, 6-year-old Lucia "Lulu" Krim and 2-year-old Leo Krim, gave an emotional impact statement, criticizing Ortega's family for lying about her background so she could get a job.
