Killer nanny set to be sentenced

Nanny who murdered UWS children faces life imprisonment

A NY nanny convicted of murdering two children she was trusted to care for was sentenced on Monday to life in prison with no possibility of parole.

Yoselyn Ortega (YOH'-sih-lihn ohr-TAY'-guh) is to be sentenced Monday following her conviction of homicide final month within the 2012 deaths of Lucia and Leo Krim.

Krim and her husband, Kevin Krim, spoke of how Ortega robbed them of their children and how Ortega's family and friends helped with this by lying to them about Ortega's personality and experience as a nanny.

During the recent trial in the Supreme Court at Manhattan, the mother of this victims Marina Krim told the court the way she had come house along with her third child, three-year-old Nessie, after Ortega failed to turn upward at Lulu's dancing course.

"My life is in the hands of God", she said.

Before the proceeding, juror No. 11, David Curtis, a cab driver and actor, said he showed up because "I just needed to see the end of this".

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

She finally checked the kids' bathroom and found her 6-year-old daughter's and 2-year-old son's blood-soaked lifeless bodies stacked in the bathtub and Ortega plunging a knife into her own neck.

The nanny's lawyer had argued that Ortega was mentally ill and couldn't be held responsible for the children's deaths. "They are two stars now who will always lead us forward".

Yoselyn Ortega appears in Manhattan Criminal Courtroom on March 8, 2013, during her first court appearance on charges that she killed two children she was hired to care for.

"It is so unfair that they are gone, unfair to us, unfair to the world", said Mr Krim. Ortega had been recommended by her sister, a nanny for another NY family, and her background and references were faked by her family.

Saying he agreed with a witness's assessment that Ortega was "pure evil", Judge Carro sentenced her to spend "the rest of your life in state prison with no possibility of parole".

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

"Nessie will never know what her sister and brother are like".

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

Medical experts testified that Lucia fought bravely and sustained more than 30 nicks, slices and stabs from Ortega.

When Marina opened the bathroom door, Ortega, who had slit her wrists earlier, stuck a knife into her own throat.
