Nanny Who Stabbed Two Children in Medically Induced Coma After Stabbing Herself in Front of Children's Mother

Posted on October 27, 2012

CNN reports on the latest details of the shocking case of the New York nanny who stabbed her two small charges to death in a bathtub, then turned the knife on herself. Joselyn Ortega, 50, had been the nanny to the Krim family for two years and was very close to the family. They had even vacationed in the Dominican Republic and met Joselyn's family. Joselyn had worked for the Krims for two years, since the birth of their little boy.

When the mother Marina Krim returned home from a swimming lesson with her three year old, she discovered the bodies of her six year old girl and her two year old little boy, stabbed and bleeding in the bathtub. Police say the mother found the children and that the nanny stabbed herself when the mother entered the room. The nanny is in a medically induced coma at a local hospital. A neighbor called 911 when she heard the mother's hysterical screams. The father, Kevin Krim, is a senior vice president for CNBC Digital. He was traveling home from the West Coast and was pulled aside by police at JFK to inform him of the tragedy.

The police seem to believe that Ortega, a naturalized citizen, just snapped one day. None of it makes any sense and parents who hire nannies are pretty much terrified. Take a look:
