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

Yoselyn Ortega was sentenced to the maximum sentence for each of the two counts of first-degree murder, as well as sentenced to 25 years to life to be served consecutively for each of the second-degree murder charges. A jury convicted her in April after siding with prosecutors who said she was motivated by money troubles and workload conflicts with the children's mother and was aware of her actions as she killed the children.

Mrs Krim had not originally meant to return to court after an intense six-hour testimony during the trial, however she returned in ordered to "finish a awful chapter in my family's life". "She's lying there in the bathtub, her eyes open". She has never shed a tear for these children. "The defendant set out to destroy what Kevin and I had created and built - and inspired, happy, thriving family. I see blood all over her".

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

"Leo and Lulu will never live the lives that laid ahead of them, and now their remorseless killer will live the rest of her life in prison", Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance said.

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.

"It was not a decision we reached lightly or easily", one juror, David Curtis, said after the verdict at a news conference attended by himself and some of the other jurors.

The former CNBC executive said he was trying to figure it out and "fumbling around" when a flight attendant asked him to go to the cockpit.

Both parents spoke in court on Monday.

Marina Krim had described on the stand walking through the family's darkened apartment, Nessie in tow, looking for her other two children the day of October 25, 2012.

"We miss hearing them call out my name and run to hug me when I got home from work", Kevin Krim said while crying. "Unfair to us, unfair to the world".

"This defendant has to this day shown no remorse".

By the time Marina Krim arrived home, Ortega had sliced her own wrists and plunged a knife into her throat.

"I'm very sorry for everything that happened", Ortega said, "But I hope that no one goes through what I've gone through".

"Although many wish me all the worst, my life is in the hands of God".

But Judge Carro was having none of it, noting that she had steadfastly refused to apologize since her 2012 heinous crime and calling her case "pure evil".
