Nanny pleads not guilty in stabbing deaths

Posted: Updated:

A nanny has pleaded not guilty in the stabbing deaths of two children at their Upper West Side apartment.

Yoselyn Ortega was arraigned Wednesday at a hospital where she has been treated for self-inflicted stab wounds.

According to the criminal complaint, at approximately 5:30 p.m. on October 25, Ortega fatally stabbed Lucia Krim, 6, and Leo Krim, 2, inside the bathroom of the Upper West Side apartment where the children's family lived.

Their mother found them when she came home with the victims' 3-year-old sister.

"Yoselyn Ortega is charged with taking the lives of two innocent children who were incapable of defending themselves," said District Attorney Vance in a statement. "This crime shocked and horrified parents around the city, many of whom entrust their children to the care of others both by necessity and by choice. My heart goes out to the family of those beautiful young children, and I hope that, with time, this family will heal."

The father of the children is an executive at business channel CNBC.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
