Manhattan nanny, Yoselyn Ortega accused of murdering the two children of Marina Krim and her husband Kevin has gone on to feign denial after being shown the bodies of the two diseased children,Lulu and Leo Krim.
Telling she had no idea who mortally stabbed six year old Lulu Krim and her two year old brother, Leo, Yoselyn Ortega’s attorney, Valerie Van Leer-Greenburg in turn told ‘these photos are very graphic.’
Went on to tell the attorney: ‘She has no mind, no memory of the incident.’
The hearing comes off the back of the brutal slaying that went on to shock the nation, on October 12, 2012 in the well to do Krim Manhattan household.
At the time, Marina Krim, the children’s mother was attending a fete with middle child Nessie when she became concerned after the Krim family nanny failed to answer her calls when she sought to check on her two other children.
Rushing home, the mother found to her horror the visage of her two toddler children slayed and that of Yoselyn Ortega furtively stabbing herself in the neck. At the time Marina Krim went on to save the life of the nanny.
From there the nanny went on to spend time in hospital where she fought for her life, all the while denying any complicity in the deaths of the children.
In June, Yoselyn Ortega went on to tell in an interview that she had nothing to do with the children’s deaths, telling: ‘I didn’t do that. Someone else did.’
Of note, when Yoselyn Ortega was questioned by police after awaking from a coma late last year, she had attempted to paint Mrs Krim in a bad light, shifting part of the blame for the tragedy on her.
Appearing in a Manhattan Supreme courtroom yesterday, Yoselyn Ortega remained calm and quiet, a deep gash visible underneath the gray sweatshirt she was wearing.
As trial gets underway, Yoselyn Ortega was yesterday ordered to return to court on December 12 for another pretrial conference.
At the time of the deaths, heated debate erupted as to how the nanny came to possibly murder the children and what may have incited her. Many at the time pointed out the divisive social dialectics at play in the community between the haves and the have nots which may have precipitated exaggerated feelings of anger and self reproach. Others had also openly wondered if Marina Krim may have somehow mistreated the nanny while many went on to defend the family, telling under no circumstances should the nanny have taken her vitriol out on the Krim family children.
Since the deaths of the two children, the Krims have begun the arduous task of rebuilding their lives. Last month, they welcomed a son, Felix.
‘We are very excited to share with you that Felix Harrison Krim, all 8 pounds, 10 ounces, and 21.5 inches of him, arrived today. Marina, Felix and all of us are healthy and happy.’
