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.
