>> A case that was described as every parent's nightmare. 56 year old New York nanny, Yoselyn Ortega convicted of fatally stabbing two young children in her care. Was sentenced on Monday to life in prison without the possibility of parole. A jury found Ortega guilty in April of murdering two year old Leo Krim and six year old Lulu Krim back in October of 2012.
Their mother, Marina Krim, said she returned to her Upper Westside apartment with her middle child, three year old Nessie. To find her two children slain and their nanny standing over them stabbing her own neck with a knife. The motive,prosecutors said, was Ortega's overwhelming financial problems bringing her 17-year-old son from the Dominican Republic.
Her workload, and resentment towards Marina for being the mother she quote could never be. Marina and her husband Kevin, who was a CNBC executive at the time of their children's death, both gave emotional statements on Monday.>> The defendent may think she destroyed Lulu and Leo, but she's a failure in this too.
Lulu and Leo are powerful forces. They are two stars now that will always lead us forward.>> We are so sad that we won't get to see them grow up. I had simple fantasies of proudly cheering Lulu and Leo on as they became these great people.>> Ortega spoke for the first time since the trial began.
>> I'm very sorry for everything that happened, but I hope that no one goes through what I have gone through. I ask for forgiveness God, from Marina, from Kevin. I wish my family, I told my family that I did not feel well.>> Ortega's lawyers tried and failed to convince the jury to find her not guilty by reason of insanity.
