It’s every parent’s worst nightmare to find those entrusted with their children are monsters ers
Pure evil au pair
It was the question on everyone’s lips in the trial earlier this month– why would Yoselyn Ortega, a seemingly innocent nanny, murder her charges Lucia, six, and Leo, two, in the cold blood?
Finally, in a case that shocked the world, Ortega admitted why she viciously stabbed two innocent children. “I had to do everything, and take care of the kids. I worked as a babysitter only and she wanted me to do five hours of cleaning each week,” the 55-year-old said, blaming the kids’ mother Marina Krim for her crime.
On October 25, 2012, Marina panicked when she and her daughter Nessie, three, arrived at Lucia’s ballet class to discover she hadn’t arrived. Marina rushed back to her Manhattan, US, home to find her children in a blood-splattered bathtub and a kitchen knife dumped in the sink.
Ortega had stabbed Lucia 30 times and slashed Leo’s throat. The nanny then plunged the knife into her own neck in front of Marina. Jurors gasped in horror when Ortega’s lawyers argued insanity, saying the once-trusted nanny was too sick to understand the consequences of what she had done. But Judge Gregory Carro referred to Ortega as “pure evil” before she was convicted of murder and handed a life sentence, with no parole.
