The new angle in Entertainment!




50 year old New York nanny, Yoselyn Ortega, has been charged with stabbing two small children to death. She allegedly killed Lucia Krim, 6, and Leo Krim,2, while their mother was out picking up her third child from a swimming lesson. Mrs Krim, who was supposed to meet up with the nanny and her kids at a dance studio after picking up her third child, became concerned when they failed to turn up and returned to her home only to come across the grisly scene in her home and bathroom.

The police found Ortega in the bathroom of her employer’s Manhattan apartment, after she had stabbed herself in the throat in an apparent suicide attempt.

It’s said that Ortega survived and  was put in a medically-induced coma after the attempted suicide and when questioned by the police after awaking from the coma, the nanny attempted to paint Mrs Krim in a bad light, shifting part of the blame of the tragedy on Mrs Krim. She further claimed that someone else had killed the children she had been accused of stabbing but could not say who else could be responsible for the murder of the children.

Doctors who examined Ortega, offered diverging views after she told them that she didn’t remember the attack but only heard voices telling her to kill people and its alleged that her defense lawyer,Valerie Van Leer-Greenberg said that Ortega’s delusions and injuries meant that she could not understand the case.

Ortega was finally examined by two mental health professionals who found her mentally fit to stand trial. She faced the jury for two counts of first degree murder and two counts of second- degree murder. She was prosecuted after a phone conversation she had with her son from jail was played in court  and with Dr Karan Rosenbaum, who testified that Ortega’s seemingly lucid thought process during her previous call with her son was not  proof that she was mentally ill.
