New York: New York police have charged a nanny with murder for stabbing two kids under her care to death, as per reports. The 50-year-old nanny, Yoselyn Ortega, reportedly faces two counts of first- and second- degree murder.

Police say Ortega fatally stabbed 6-year-old Lucia Krim and her 2-year-old brother, Leo, on Oct 25 in the children`s Upper West Side apartment near Central, according to reports.

A third sibling was with their mother when the killings happened.

The children`s mother, Marina Kim, brought her 3-year-old daughter home from a swim lesson to find her other youngsters, ages 2 and 6, dying of knife wounds in the bathtub.

Ortega then turned the blade on herself, police said.
