Thousand Oaks vigil held for kids allegedly killed by N.Y. nanny
A candlelight vigil was held Sunday in Thousand Oaks to remember two children stabbed to death in New York, allegedly by their nanny.
The father of the children, Kevin Krim, played football at Thousand Oaks High School, and his father still lives in Camarillo, KTLA-TV reported.
Police say Yoselyn Ortega, 50, repeatedly stabbed 6-year-old Lucia Krim and her 2-year-old brother, Leo, on the evening of Oct. 25 before wounding herself. The children's mother, who had been out with a third child, returned home to find the bodies in the bathtub.
Friends of the Krim family gathered Sunday evening outside St. Paschal Baylon Church to offer their support and condolences.
Ortega, who had worked for the Krim family for two years, has been charged with first- and second-degree murder. She had recovered from her wounds enough to be interviewed by police Saturday. Friends and family say she had been struggling financially, but there still isn't a clear motive for the stabbings.ALSO:
