New York nanny faces life in haunting murder of children in her care

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

A nanny convicted of brutally murdering two small children in her care has been sentenced in New York City to life in prison without parole.

Last month, a jury rejected her lawyers' arguments that she was mentally ill and could not be held responsible for the deaths of the siblings and convicted her of murder.

She said Ortega has shown no remorse, and no one in her family has ever said they were sorry for the children's slayings. The children were later found in the bathtub when their mother returned home to the bloody apartment.

Ortega never disputed that she killed the children, but instead pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. "So many people have wished me all the worse, my life is in the hands of God".

Marina Krim makes a victim impact statement on May 14, 2018.

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

"The defendant may think she destroyed Lulu and Leo, but she is a failure in this, too".

On Monday, Ortega appeared visibly shaken as she apologised while addressing the court.

The consequences, the Krims said, were horrifying.

"It is so unfair that they are gone", the father said. "We miss feeling their soft skin in our arms".

"I ask for a great deal of forgiveness".

She wept and apologized to the 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 risky narcissist" who deserves her sentence of life in prison without parole.

As the verdicts were read, Kevin Krim broke down in tears.

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

Dad Kevin Krim says it's right nanny Yoselyn Ortega (YOH'-sih-lihn ohr-TAY'-guh) "should live and rot and die in a metal case".

The prosecution said Ortega deliberately planned the murders and was motivated by financial problems and resentment of her wealthy employers. The emotional testimony often kept the panel and the audience in tears.

The 55-year-old Ortega is from the Dominican Republic.

Krim opened the door to the bathroom to discover the children's bodies stacked in the tub.

By the time Marina Krim arrived home, Ortega had sliced her own wrists and plunged a knife into her throat.
