Accused UWS Nanny Might Have Murdered Children Over Her Pay


This is not exactly the story we want to hear again after Sandy or on Election Day.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Yoselyn Ortegas, the 50-year-old nanny charged with the first- and second-degree murder of two children, Lucia Krim, 6, and Leo Krim, 2, in an Upper West Side apartment two weeks ago, confessed to authorities that her original intention was over money issues – she argued that the parents were not paying her enough:
‘She said that Ms. Krim and her husband, CNBC executive Kevin Krim, didn’t pay her enough for the amount of hours she was working, the official said.”
However, she also told the authorities that she did not mean to harm the children at all – the nanny is now arguing that she only “attacked” the children but didn’t murder them.
According to officials, the nanny eerily told the authorities that “Marina knows what happened” – Marina being Marina Krim, the mother of the two children who was out of the apartment with the third child when the murder occurred. The story goes that she came home to the crime scene and Ortegas began stabbing herself when she saw Marina enter the apartment.
In an interview with the Daily News, the paternal grandmother of the children, Karen Krim, told reporters that she couldn’t believe that this was over anything related to money: “I’m just astounded, and I have no idea why something like this would happen. They just bent over backwards being nice for this woman… They treated her like family.”
However, as the details begin to build in this horrible case, it’s still unsure as to what exactly happened. The Voice will keep you updated as the story progresses.
