Mother Marina Krim told a judge that Ortega instead destroyed her own family. She said Ortega had shown no remorse, and no one in her family has ever said they were sorry.



The nanny Yoselyn Ortega was sentenced to 25 years on each count of first-degree murder, to run consecutively, meaning she would serve a minimum of 50 years. She was convicted in April 2018 after her lawyers argued she was mentally ill and couldn’t be held responsible for their deaths.
