Nanny charged with murder of Krim kids in New York
New York.– Yoselyn Ortega, the Dominican nanny for the Krim family, was charged on Saturday with the murder of Marina and Kevin Krim’s 2-year-old son Leo and 6-year-old daughter Lulu.
The two children were found stabbed and bleeding to death in the bath along with 50-year-old nanny nearby who failed to kill herself by slitting her own throat.
“Yoselyn Ortega, age 50, was tonight arrested and charged with two counts each of murder in the first and second degrees in the stabbing deaths on October 25 of two children in her care, Lucia Krim, 6, and her brother, Leo, who would have turned 2 years of age five days later on October 30,” New York Deputy Police Commissioner Paul Browne said in a statement.
Ortega, a naturalized U.S. citizen who was born in the Dominican Republic, worked for the Krim family for two years and had been referred to them by another family, Browne said.
Authorities said the children’s father, a CNBC executive, was on a business trip in San Francisco at the time of the murders. He flew home that night, and police rushed him to his family.
