New York City nanny indicted on murder charges in 2 deaths

A Manhattan nanny has been indicted on murder charges in the stabbing deaths of two children three weeks ago.

The New York Times says the charges are in court records released Tuesday.

Six-year-old Lucia Krim and her 2-year-old brother, Leo, were killed Oct. 25 in their Upper West Side apartment. Their mother found them when she came home with the victims' 3-year-old sister.

The nanny, Yoselyn Ortega, remains hospitalized with self-inflicted stab wounds, and police have said they don't know if Ortega has a lawyer.

She's expected to be arraigned via video. The hearing has not yet been scheduled.
