A New York Metropolis nanny who killed two young children in her care is dealing with life in jail. Yoselyn Ortega was convicted of murder for the 2012 stabbing deaths of 6-year-old Lucia Krim and 2-year-old Leo Krim.

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.
The prosecution said Ortega deliberately planned the murders and was motivated by financial problems and resentment of her wealthy employers.
The judge expressed some understanding for Oretga regarding her mental illness and said it could mitigate some of her responsibility.
"It is so unfair that they are gone, unfair to us, unfair to the world", said Kevin.
She said she was asking forgiveness from God and the children's parents, adding she had not been feeling well on the day of the murders.
"Although many wish me all the worst, my life is in the hands of God".
