The indictment filed earlier this month says Ortega intended to kill 6-year-old Lucia Krim and her 2-year-old brother Leo Krim.
Police say that the mother of the children, Marina Krim, found the 50-year-old nanny in the bathroom of the family's Upper West Side luxury apartment stabbing herself, while the children bled to death in the bathtub.
