(Newser) – New York's alleged child-killing nanny was not only tired of being told what to do, she had an "epic argument" with her employer the day before the children died, according to a law enforcement source. Yoselyn Ortega told detectives "that she was involved in an epic argument with Marina Krim," the source tells Radar. And Krim ignored the nanny when she said goodbye at the end of the day, which "made her very, very angry."

Ortega apparently became very animated when recounting this hot-tempered day. She said she also had several arguments with her employer about how to care for the kids, 6-year-old Lucia Krim and 2-year-old Leo. According to the law enforcement source, Krim accused her of neglecting the children at times and "giving them junk food when she was out of sight."

Hey Unkiestu..... I've seen nothing indicating the nanny was undocumented. And even if she was, I've seen no evidence that undocumented immigrants are more likely to kill children than documented workers and/or native born. The moral of this story is to be careful who you leave your children with. Undocumented workers are picking the food that feeds you. Every time undocumented workers have been blocked from the fields, the food rots in the fields. There are simply not enough documented workers and/or native born workers who are willing and able to do farm work. So unless you are willing to get out there and pick your own food, a "thank you" might be in order. That said, I support prosecuting murderers, regardless of their paperwork status or nationality.
