A New York City nanny entered a not guilty plea to charges she murdered two children of a former Ventura County man who were under her care.
Yoselyn Ortega is charged with stabbing to death 6 year old Lucia Krimm, and her 2 year old brother, Leo at the family’s home.
Police say she then tried to kill herself with the same knife.
Because of her injuries, the arraignment occurred in a hospital room. A judge ordered her to undergo a psychiatric exam.
The children’s father, Kevin Krimm, is a CNBC executive who grew up in Ventura County, and was a football star at Thousand oaks High School.
