Nanny to be sentenced in killing of two children

It provided a much-needed measure of relief for the parents of 6-year-old Lulu and 2-year-old Leo Krim, who were savagely slain in the bathroom of their Upper West Side home on October 25, 2012, while the mom was at a swim class with their middle sibling Nessie, then 3.

On the day of the murders, the children's mother, Marina Krim, arrived back at their Upper West Side apartment with her third child to find Lucia and Leo dead in her blood-soaked bathroom.

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

Ortega never disputed that she killed the children, but instead pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.

Yoselyn Ortega, 55, was convicted of first-degree murder April 18 after a two-month trial in Manhattan Supreme Court.

"The defendant is an evil and utterly unsafe narcissist", he said.

"This defendant has to this day shown no remorse".

Discussing in Spanish through a translator, she also said had been "sorry for whatever", adding she expected for "a good deal of forgiveness".

"It is so unfair that they are gone", the father said. "They are two stars now who will always lead us forward". To God. To Marina.

"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 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".

"As Nessie grows up, she will be asking Kevin and me deep, unanswerable questions about life that most parents avoid talking about with their kids", Marina Krim said.

Kevin also testified in heartbreaking detail about learning that two of his children were dead and seeing their bodies at the hospital.

She claimed she did not remember the attack and was possessed by the devil, but a psychologist told jurors she was depressed, but not mentally ill - and had not mentioned hallucinations at the time.

Prosecutors said Ortega was driven to kill because she was jealous of Ms Krim and resentful of the cleaning she had to do.

At her trial, jurors had listened for weeks to grim testimony about the violent killings of the children.

Mr Krim, who now works at a start-up, and his wife use a Facebook page to post updates on their lives.

The case hinged on evidence presented about Ms. Ortega's mental health history and her state of mind at the time of the slayings, much of which countered her argument that she was in the grip of severe psychosis.
