5:25 p.m.

Prosecutors say the parents of two children stabbed to death by their nanny at their New York home have "lived through the worst nightmare any parent could endure."

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. says his heart goes out to the Krim family.

Nanny Yoselyn Ortega (YOH'-sih-lihn ohr-TAY'-guh) bludgeoned 6-year-old Lucia Krim and 2-year-old Leo Krim in October 2012 while their mother was taking a sibling to a swimming lesson and their father was out of town. She was convicted of murder on Wednesday despite her claims she was too mentally ill to be held responsible.

The children's father hugged alternate jurors in court and cried with them as the verdict was read.

The 55-year-old Ortega is from the Dominican Republican and faces life in prison.

A nanny convicted of murder for stabbing two children to death at their New York home has expressed no reaction to the verdict, just staring straight ahead.

The children's father, Kevin Krim, held hands in court on Wednesday with two alternate jurors who said they would stay for the verdict and then hugged them after it was read. They cried together.

Jurors found nanny Yoselyn Ortega (YOH'-sih-lihn ohr-TAY'-guh) guilty of murder in the October 2012 deaths of 6-year-old Lucia Krim and 2-year-old Leo Krim.

The nanny's lawyer had argued she was mentally ill and should not be held responsible.

Investigators say Lucia was stabbed more than 30 times and Leo was stabbed five times.

A nanny who argued she was too mentally ill to be held responsible for stabbing two children to death at their New York home has been convicted.

Jurors on Wednesday found Yoselyn Ortega (YOH'-sih-lihn ohr-TAY'-guh) guilty of murder in the October 2012 deaths of 6-year-old Lucia Krim and her brother, 2-year-old Leo Krim.

The nanny's lawyer had argued she was mentally ill and should not be held responsible in the deaths of the children.

Investigators say Lucia was stabbed more than 30 times and Leo was stabbed five times. Prosecutors say Ortega knew what she was doing and understood "every stab, every slash."

The children's mother found them in a bathroom.
