NEW YORK - A New York nanny suspected of slaying two young children of a Manhattan couple last month in their luxury apartment was arrested on Saturday and charged with murder in their stabbing deaths, New York's deputy police commissioner said.

The nanny, Yoselyn Ortega, was arrested over the deaths of 6-year-old Lucia Krim and her toddler brother Leo, who had been days shy of his second birthday, following a bedside interview at New York Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center.



The children's mother, Marina Krim, found her son and older daughter stabbed to death in the bathtub as she returned home on October 25 from a swimming lesson with a third child, 3-year-old Nessie, who was unharmed, police have said.

The nanny, who remains hospitalized and under guard, then began stabbing herself in front of the children's mother in the apartment on Manhattan's affluent Upper West Side.
