Killer Nanny Yoselyn Ortega Sentenced to Life in Prison Without Parole

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

A NY nanny convicted of fatally stabbing two young children in her care was sentenced on Monday to life in prison without the possibility of parole for a crime that has been described as every parent's nightmare.

Yoselyn Ortega was sentenced to life in prison on two counts of first-degree murder and consecutive sentences of 25 years each on two counts of second-degree murder for fatally stabbing 6-year-old Lucia and 2-year-old Leo in their home on October 25, 2012.

The six-woman, six-man jury rejected her defense team's contention that Ortega was mentally unfit and was in a "psychotic" and "dissociative" state when she attacked the children.

"She did it intentionally with a full understanding of exactly what it was she was doing-every stab, every slash", ADA Stuart Silberg said in his closing.

The youngsters's mom discovered them in a toilet.

Krim had been at a swimming class with her 3-year-old daughter, Nessie Krim. She recalled the shock of returning to the family's Upper West Side apartment to find her children slain and their nanny standing over them stabbing her own neck with a kitchen knife. She then tried to kill herself.

The opening ceremony, attended by several senior White House officials and Israeli politicians, started at 4:00 PM. At least 772 other protesters were wounded, including 86 who were in a serious or critical condition.

Marina Krim makes a victim impact statement on May 14, 2018. "We believe that the 10 Principles of Creativity can help children across this city and this country build the social-emotional skills and resilience to thrive no matter what the world throws at them".

Ortega had pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.

The children were found in a bathtub by their mother when she returned home to the family's luxury apartment building at 75th and Columbus Avenue.

Ortega was also struggling to pay tuition fees for her 17-year-old son, whom she had brought to the USA from the Dominican Republic and enrolled in a private school. Lulu was stabbed more than 30 times, and Leo was stabbed five times.

"I ask for a great deal of forgiveness - to God, to Marina, to Kevin", she said, wearing an oatmeal top and her dark hair scraped back into a pony tail. "It was real", Krim told jurors.

Prosecutors argued that Ortega was jealous of Marina Krim's life and lashed out in the worst way possible - at her children.
