After her arrest last week, New York nanny Yoselyn Ortega, 50, was arraigned via video link from her hospital bed on charges of murder after the killings of 6-year-old Lucia Krim and 2-year-old and Leo Krim.
The New York nanny’s case stunned and horrified the country when the story made headlines, and the brutal murders that seemingly came out of nowhere were as heartbreaking as they were senseless.
In the wake of the New York nanny case, a personal blog kept by mom Marina Krim circulated across the web, featuring candid images of the two murdered Krim kids along with their surviving sibling engaging in family activities across Manhattan. And motive was speculated upon heavily: How could anyone, much less a caregiver with connections to the children, harm them so violently?
At first, a near-fatal wound meant that more questions than answers existed in the New York nanny case, but the New York Times reports that, after a while, Ortega began to discuss the killings with police.
The paper says the New York nanny has admitted she was angry but hasn’t admitted her role in the murders:
“Ms. Ortega was intubated and unable to speak for more than a week. She eventually told detectives that she resented the family because they always told her what to do, a law enforcement official said last week.”
“She has not confessed to the killings, though, the official said.”
An arraignment has not yet been scheduled in the New York nanny’s case owing to the special circumstances surrounding it.
