Dominican nanny charged with killing 2 children appears in a NYC court

New York.- Joselyn Ortega, the Dominican nanny native of Santiago charged with murdering children Leo and Lucia Krim in the fall of 2012, was declared fit to stand trial for the crimes, as determined by licensed psychologists assigned by the court.

The accused last Friday again appeared in Manhattan State Supreme Court before Judge Gregory Carro, who said the trial could start no later than June.

Ortega, who tried to cut her throat on the day of the murder, has pleaded not guilty to murder and faces life in prison if a jury finds her guilty on first-degree murder.
