By the time Marina Krim arrived home, Ortega had sliced her own wrists and plunged a knife into her throat.

On Monday, mother Marina Krim, who found her children mortally wounded in their bathtub, told a judge that Ortega tried to destroy the Krim family but failed and instead had destroyed her own family. To God. To Marina.

"The defendant's son, Jesus Frias, sat in front of a traumatized jury, winking and grinning at the jury members as if it were some kind of reality TV show he wants to win", the mom said.

Marina Krim said that after she testified at Ortega's trial, "I wasn't planning on coming back into this courtroom after that", but, she added, "I'm here once again to finish this terrible chapter in my and my family's life".

"I'm very sorry for everything that happened, but I hope that no one goes through what I have gone through", the 55-year-old Ortega said through tears. The parents hired her after a relative of Ortega's provided them with a fabricated reference claiming Ortega had nannied for a child of hers who never existed.

At trial, Ortega's lawyers argued that the woman had been living in a state of depression and had disorders in the psyche.

The defense countered that Ms. Ortega suffered from a chronic mental illness and was experiencing a psychotic and dissociative episode when she killed the children. The emotional testimony often kept the panel and the audience in tears.

Krim had been at a swimming class with her 3-year-old daughter, Nessie Krim.

Nawaz Sharif turns down NSC's statement
On Monday, Pakistan's top civil-military body National Security Committee in a meeting said the recent statement made by Sharif was 'incorrect and misleading'.

"It is right that she should go from being hated by the world to being forgotten by the world", he said about Ortega, adding: "In my best moments I feel Lulu and Leo inspiring me and carrying me forward".

Krim opened the door to the bathroom to discover the children's bodies stacked in the tub.

Medical experts testified that Lucia fought bravely and sustained more than 30 nicks, slices and stabs from Ortega.

At the sentencing, Marina Krim talked about what that crime scene may have done to Nessie, even though she has grown into a strong, happy child.

"The other day I found myself on the corner of 76th [Street] and Columbus [Avenue], and I just stopped", he said, tears filling his eyes as he described looking into the lobby of the building where the murders took place. "But we will try to answer her questions with sensitivity the best we can".

"You will know a diseased mind when you see it", Valerie Van Leer-Greenberg, Ms. Ortega's lawyer, told jurors at the start of the trial.

Prosecutors argued that Ortega was jealous of Marina Krim's life and lashed out in the worst way possible - at her children.
