New York mother says finding slain children was a 'nightmare'

New York mother says finding slain children was a 'nightmare'After opening statements in which the prosecution described the grisly killings and the defense urged jurors to find the nanny, Yoselyn Ortega, not guilty by reason of insanity, the mother of the slain children appeared as the first witness. Marina Krim recounted going home to her luxury apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side on Oct. 25, 2012, only to discover her daughter Lucia, 6, nicknamed Lulu, and son Leo, 2, stabbed to death. Ortega, 55, on trial for two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of second-degree murder, planned the killing, waiting to be alone with the children and using the family’s kitchen knives, said Assistant Manhattan District Attorney Courtney Groves.
