The children were found in a bathtub by their mother when she returned home to the family's luxury apartment building on Manhattan's upper west side. Each had been stabbed multiple times with a kitchen knife, police said.

Ortega had stabbed herself in the neck before police arrived. She was hospitalized for weeks.

The court found her mentally fit to stand trial but her defense will try to raise doubts.

Police said Marina Karim and her 3-year-old child returned to their luxury New York City apartment building on Oct. 25, 2012, where she found her 6-year-old daughter, Lucia, and her 2-year-old son, Leo, stabbed to death in a bathtub. Their nanny, 50-year-old Yoselyn Ortega, lay wounded nearby with self-inflicted stab wounds. Police said a kitchen knife was close by and Ortega is suspected of killing the children, who were pronounced dead at a hospital. Ortega was hospitalized in critical condition.AboveUndated personal photos of Lucia (left) and Leo Krim: CRIMESIDER.jpg © Personal photo CRIMESIDER.jpg
