NY nanny in court on anniversary of day 2 kids were found dead in bathroom while mom was out

A New York City nanny charged with stabbing two small children to death has appeared in court on the anniversary of their killings.

Yoselyn (YOH'-sih-lihn) Ortega appeared briefly in Manhattan court on Friday. Defense attorneys and prosecutors discussed handing over evidence. The hearing was adjourned until November.

Police say Ortega killed 6-year-old Lucia Krim and 2-year-old Leo Krim on Oct. 25, 2012, in a bathroom while their mother was out picking up her third child from a swimming lesson. They say Ortega cut her throat in a failed suicide attempt.

Ortega is from the Dominican Republic. She has pleaded not guilty to murder charges.

Defense lawyer Valerie Van Leer-Greenberg says Ortega's delusions and injuries mean she can't understand the case.

A state Supreme Court justice found Ortega fit for trial.
