NYC nanny charged in death of children

| No Comments

Saturday Police officially charged the nanny accused of stabbing two children in her care last month, according to the Washington Post via the Associated Press.

The nanny, Yoselyn Ortega, was charged with "two counts each of murder in the first and second degree" in the deaths of Lucia and Leo Krim, six years and one year old respectively, according to NBC News.

The children's mother, Marina Krim, came home to find two of her children dead in a bathtub and witnessed the nanny turn the knife on herself, according to the Washington Post. Marina Krim came home after the nanny failed to meet her with the other two children. A third child, Nessie Krim, survived as she was with Marina Krim at the time of the incident.

Authorities failed to say whether Ortega, who is still in the hospital recovering from self-inflicted stab wounds to the neck, has obtained a lawyer according to the Washington Post.
