Re­ject­ing the claim that Yose­lyn Ortega was men­tally ill and didn’t un­der­stand her ac­tions, the jury found her guilty of the mur­ders.

Kevin Krim hung his head as the ver­dict was read out. Marina wasn’t in court but, shortly af­ter, she posted a photo on In­sta­gram from the Em­pire State Build­ing, a land­mark Leo adored.

The cap­tion said, You two never made it to the top, but I’m up here now for the first time, in peace, on top of the world, re­mem­ber­ing an­other life­time and think­ing of you.

A month later, Ortega, 55, showed the first ounce of emo­tion. ‘I’m very sorry for ev­ery­thing that hap­pened,’ she said.

The judge de­scribed her as ‘pure evil’ and she was sen­tenced to life in prison with­out pa­role.
