Why did a Manhattan nanny stab Marina Krim’s two children to death?

Marina and Kevin Krim‘s nanny Yoselyn Ortega has this Saturday evening been formally charged with the first and second degree murder of their two children 6 year old Lulu and 2 year old Leo Krim.

The double murders which occurred on the afternoon of the 25th of October at the Krim family‘s upscale doorman family residence on West 75th st has brought a large outpouring over despair of how the murders could have possibly been precipitated.

Having finally gained coherent consciousness the 50 year old nanny was interviewed by police detectives at her bedside this afternoon at her bedside at Weill Cornell Medical center where she has been since the night of the murders recovering from self inflicted wounds as a result of a failed suicide. According to authorities the nanny had attempted to take her own life the moment Marina Krim walked into the family bathroom after having looked all over the family apartment for the children who had failed to turn up with Ms Ortega for a swim meeting on the afternoon of the 25th.

Upon walking into the bathroom Marina Krim came across her two children who she had left in the nannies care stabbed a number of times, their throats slashed, unconscious and feared dead as a distraught Ms Ortega began slashing at her own throat and wrists with the knife that she had used to murder the two children.

Pursuant to being interviewed, Ms Ortega at 6.06pm who remains hospitalized after suffering extensive injuries at her own hand (it is said her attempt to slash her own throat left one of her neck vertebrae broken) was formally charged with the double murders of the children.

The murders have led to an outpouring of grief from the community and has raised concern amongst many upwardly mobile families who already employ nannies.

The Ortega case has to date raised questions with respect to social polarity, mobility and the often stark reality that employees face in relation to their well to do employers who some like Ms Ortega bore a personal gripe towards as a result of her own increasing difficulties which in recent times saw her dislocated, financially struggling to make ends meet and according to friends and family seeking the help of psychiatrists.

As of present it is known that Ms Ortega disclosed to authorities that she had killed the Krim family children after been told she could clean the house in order to make extra hours in lieu of the Krim family’s consideration of Ms Ortega’s dire predicament. It is also understood Ms Ortega had also been recently warned that she risked being fired if her attitude and performance did not markedly improve.

Offered NYPD spokesman Paul Browne this evening: “Ms Ortgea is no longer incubated and recuperating.”



  1. Well obviously the children were quite a handful considering that the stay the home mom hired a nanny to help. Rapido and furiouso indeed.

  2. I always cry when I see the pictures; I have a 6 years old girl. I need to write something. I had financial stress in my live; 2 times; not an a excuse to kill. The killer woman shows no remorse. For me she should be given death penalty.

  3. I have been thinking about and praying for this family since last week! The moment I heard of this. There are NO words to describe the pain the krim family is going thru… Especially Marina. I AMA mother of 2 young ones, and also have a nanny… And this story has hit home for me … My heart breaks for this mother, he surving child and those poor innocent Lulu and Leo who suffered in such a horrible way. I cannot express my sorrow I feel. My heart is broken for this mother as though I personally knew her. All I can do is pray for her, for her family and those 2 poor souls! I along with many want justice … That this crazy lady feels nothing but pain! She not only killed one family but in a sense killed her own! NOBODY in the right mind would ever now marry her son , nobody would want to bare any child with him… Knowing his mother did this to children. ( the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree… Mental illness can run in families!) he brought so much pain to this family to feel for the rest of teir lives… And now this nanny needs to feel the same Pain. If only words could kill, I’m sure she’d be dead a long time ago! Marina, u r not alone heartbroken by this… I too ( a complete stranger) prays and thinks about u everyday. I wish I could offer u some of my heart as a mother, since I know yours is truly broken. RIP Lulu and Leo.:(

  4. so very thankful the little angel on the left is safe…………. Beyond words and belief, how could she?????? I shudder to think how that horrible excuse for a human being treated the children when the parents were not around………….
