NYC nanny denies she killed 2 kids in her care

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - A New York City nanny accused of killing two children in her care says someone else did it and the charges against her "are all lies."

Yoselyn Ortega tells the Daily News in a jailhouse interview that she didn't kill 2-year-old Leo Krim and his 6-year-old sister, Lucia.

The children were found dead in the bathtub of their Upper West Side apartment on Oct. 25, 2012. The Krims' third child, 4-year-old Nessie, wasn't home at the time.

Ortega has pleaded not guilty to murder charges. She didn't say who else could be responsible for the killings.

When the newspaper asked her if she loved the slain kids, she said, "My lawyer told me not to talk."

    State officials said they will consider converting dilapidated train tracks into a recreational trail in the northeastern Adirondacks and look at options to bolster tourist train service at the southwestern end of the 119-mile-long rail corridor. The plan announced late Wednesday appears to be an attempt to strike a compromise between rail-trail advocates who envision a 90-mile biking, hiking and snowmobiling trail and railroad advocates who want to extend rail service.
