(Newser) – The father of the two children found stabbed to death, allegedly by their nanny, in a luxury NYC apartment is Kevin Krim, CNBC's general manager of digital content, reports Reuters. Their mother, Marina Krim, kept a detailed blog about her happy family life, and wrote a heartbreaking post about the younger of the two stabbing victims just hours before she came home to find him and his sister bleeding in an empty bathtub. Two-year-old "Leo speaks in the most adorable way," she wrote on the blog. Police say Marina Krim came home with her other child, a 3-year-old girl who had been at swimming practice, when she found the kids.

Meanwhile the nanny, Yoselyn Ortega, age 50, remains in sedated and in critical condition after allegedly slitting her own throat with the knife she used on the children, reports AP. Police have been unable to charge her, but they are hoping to interview her later today. The blog reveals that the Krims were very careful in selecting a nanny Marina called "Josie," even visiting her family in the Dominican Republic, though it's not clear Josie and Yoselyn Ortega are one and the same, Fox News reports. Ortega's niece says her aunt "loved those kids," but had been acting strangely and seemed "kind of nervous lately."

She couldn't possibly have found them in an "EMPTY" bathtub. If it was empty, they wouldn't have been in it! Yeah, yeah, I know. I'm being a smartass! So what? That's better than most of the crap that gets posted here! I haven't had coffee yet, so It's not my fault!

This is just a tragedy plain and simple. So no one has ever had a baby sitter watch their kids or you all home school your kids. Our children are with different people most of the day every day. Parents are not always with them. No matter who did it or how this happened, we should feel for the poor parents.

If this was a detective novel I'd suspect that the husband and the nanny were engaging in a sexual relationship and she ended up pregnant. He refused to accept this and she attacked the kids in a fit of rage and jealousy. When the mother came home, the nanny slit her own throat once she realized what she had done. Let's see if I'm right.
