NY Nanny suspected of killing children
NEW YORK — A mother returned home to her luxury New York City apartment yesterday to find two of her young children stabbed to death in the bathtub, and the family’s nanny was arrested as the suspect in the killings, police said.
The mother discovered the bodies of the little boy and girl at about 5:30 p.m. in their apartment at 57 West 75th Street, near Central Park, on Manhattan’s affluent Upper West Side, police said.
New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne said the children suffered “multiple stab wounds”, and were pronounced dead at the scene, he said.
“It’s about the worst thing you can hear or imagine,” Browne said.
Nanny stabs self
The nanny was lying on the bathroom floor and had stabbed herself in the neck, police said. A bloody kitchen knife lay on the floor nearby, police said.
The 50-year-old nanny, who was not identified, was taken to a nearby hospital and was under arrest, police said.
She was listed in critical but stable condition, police said.
The mother was identified as Marina Krim, 38, police said. The slain children were Leo, two, and Lulu, six.
Their father is Kevin Krim, a CNBC executive.
The mother had returned home with a third child, three-year-old Nessie, after the girl’s swimming lesson, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said at a media briefing.
She saw that the apartment was dark and returned to the lobby to ask the doorman if the nanny and kids had gone out, he said. The doorman said no, and she returned to the apartment to make the grisly discovery, he said. (Reuters)
