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

The motive, prosecutors said, was Ortega's overwhelming financial problems after bringing her 17-year-old son from the Dominican Republic and her resentment toward Marina Krim, married to then-CNBC executive Kevin Krim, for being the mother "she could never be". "We miss feeling their soft skin in our arms".

In sentencing Yoselyn Ortega, 56, the judge described her as "pure evil" before handing her the maximum term.

"First I see Lulu and I instantly know she's dead", Krim testified at Ortega's trial.

He eviscerated Ortega for not pleading guilty and forcing the case into a courtroom. She had been working for the Krim family for almost two years when she took the children to the back bathroom of their apartment and stabbed them to death in October 2012.

The Krims 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.

"I ask for a good deal of goodness".

Her husband Kevin Krim told Manhattan's Supreme Court he heard about the murder when he switched his phone off aeroplane mode at John F. Kennedy International Airport in NY to find a barrage of text messages from concerned friends.

Krim had been at a swimming class with her 3-year-old daughter, Nessie Krim. "It is right that she should live and rot and die in a metal case, like the ugly and dark shadow of Lulu and Leo's bright and shiny lights".

Estrada allowed no runs over six innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Tampa Bay Rays, a 2-1 Toronto win at Tropicana Field. After police and security staff escorted the fan out the gate in right field, Cora came out to make the change.

Her sister Celia said the nanny had "snapped" after neighbours revealed she had been visibly unravelling in the months before the sickening murder.

Ortega's lawyer said Ortega suffered from depression and anxiety disorders, and refused to take prescribed medications.

At trial, Ortega's lawyer argued she should be found not responsible by reason of mental disease or defect - a bid the jury rejected after weeks of psychiatric testimony from experts on both sides. But when Krim arrived, Lulu wasn't there.

Ortega had worked for the Krims for some two years before she killed their babies. When Marina and Nessie returned home, around 5:30 p.m., Marina went to the bathroom, and opened the door. Each time she makes a wish, it's always for Leo and Lulu to come back to be with us. "But she failed. What actually happened is the defendant destroyed her own family".

"The defendant set out to destroy what Kevin and I created and built: an inspired, happy, thriving family", Marina Krim said. "But we will try to answer her questions with sensitivity the best we can".

At Ortega's trial, Kevin Krim testified that when his plane landed in NY that night in October 2012, he was met by police, who escorted him to the hospital where the bodies of his dead children had been brought, along with his wife and surviving child.

The prosecution argued that the nanny had meant to kill the two young children before committing suicide because she was angry and depressed about her workload, and jealous of the child's mother.
