Nanny to be sentenced in killing of two kids

Top News: Nanny to be sentenced in killing of two kids

But Judge Gregory Carro referred to Ortega as "pure evil" and said she should spend the rest of her life in prison.

At the sentencing, Marina Krim talked about what that crime scene may have done to Nessie, even though she has grown into a strong, happy child.

Yoselyn Ortega, 56, was found guilty in April of two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of second-degree murder for stabbing Lucia Krim, 6, and Leo Krim, 2, to death in their Upper West Side home in Manhattan in October 2012.

Stuart Silberg, the lead prosecutor, had urged the judge to sentence her to life without parole. The children were later found in the bathtub when their mother returned home to the bloody apartment.

"I just wanted to wake up from this nightmare that I knew wasn't a nightmare".

"It is so unfair that they are gone, unfair to us, unfair to the world", said Kevin.

"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.

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.

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

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

Ortega's lawyers presented evidence at her trial that she did not know what she was doing because she was mentally ill, but it was not enough to sway the jury, which rejected this argument in convicting her. Ortega then stabbed herself in the neck in an apparent suicide attempt, police said. The girl was stabbed more than 30 times and the boy was stabbed five times. "We started this together as a group, and we needed to finish it", said juror No. 11, David Curtis, a cab driver and actor.

"We could not find a strongly credible proof that the defendant was not aware and able to recognize what was going on", Curtis said.

Ortega is a naturalized United States citizen and a native of the Dominican Republic.

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

The Krims have since been working on legislation that would make it illegal to falsify references for someone working in the childcare industry.
