NEW YORK (AP) — The Latest on a New York City nanny convicted of murdering two children (all times local):

5:05 p.m.

The parents of two small children whose nanny stabbed them to death at their New York City home say she is "an evil and utterly dangerous narcissist" who deserves her sentence of life in prison without parole.

Dad Kevin Krim says it's right nanny Yoselyn Ortega (YOH'-sih-lihn ohr-TAY'-guh) "should live and rot and die in a metal case."

Ortega was convicted last month in the deaths of 6-year-old Lucia Krim and 2-year-old Leo Krim and was sentenced Monday. She cried and said she's "very sorry for everything that happened."

Ortega had been working for the Krim family for about two years when she took the children to a bathroom of their apartment and killed them in 2012. She argued she had been too mentally ill to understand what she was doing.

The judge calls Ortega "pure evil."

A nanny convicted of brutally murdering two small children in her care has been sentenced in New York City to life in prison without parole.

Yoselyn Ortega (YOH'-sih-lihn ohr-TAY'-guh) was convicted last month in the deaths of 6-year-old Lucia Krim and 2-year-old Leo Krim and was sentenced Monday. She had been working for the Krim family for nearly two years when she took the children to a bathroom of their apartment and stabbed them to death in 2012.

She wept and apologized to the family.

The children's mother had been out with a third child and returned home to find them dead. Their father was out of town.

Ortega's lawyer argued she was too mentally ill to know what she was doing when she killed the children.

The 55-year-old Ortega is from the Dominican Republic.

The mother of two children stabbed to death by their nanny at their New York City home says the nanny tried to destroy her family but failed.

Marina Krim told a judge that nanny Yoselyn Ortega (YOH'-sih-lihn ohr-TAY'-guh) instead destroyed her own family. Krim says Ortega has shown no remorse and no one in her family has said sorry.

Ortega was convicted last month in the 2012 deaths of 6-year-old Lucia Krim and 2-year-old Leo Krim and faced life in prison without parole at her sentencing Monday.

Ortega is from the Dominican Republic. She had been working for the Krim family for nearly two years when she took the children to the back bathroom of their apartment and killed them.

Ortega's lawyer argued she was too mentally ill to know what she was doing. A jury disagreed.

A New York City nanny who killed two small children in her care is facing life in prison.

Yoselyn Ortega (YOH'-sih-lihn ohr-TAY'-guh) is to be sentenced Monday following her conviction of murder last month in the 2012 deaths of Lucia and Leo Krim.

The nanny's lawyer had argued that Ortega was mentally ill and couldn't be held responsible for the children's deaths.

Lucia was 6. Leo was 2.

Prosecutors say Ortega knew what she was doing and understood "every stab, every slash" as she slaughtered the children.

The children's mother found them in a bathroom. The parents' testimony made jurors weep during the emotional trial.
