The parents of two young children killed last fall allegedly by their nanny announced on Thursday that they are expecting a baby this fall.
Kevin and Marina Krim broke the news on a Facebook page established in the memory of their children, Lulu, 6, and Leo, 2, who were found stabbed to death in their Manhattan home in October.
“We are very happy to let you know that Marina is expecting a baby in the fall,” the Krims wrote. They added that their surviving daughter, Nessie, 3, “can’t wait to welcome her new baby brother.”
“We are filled with many emotions as we look to the future, but the most important one is hope,” the Krims wrote.
The announcement comes just a month after Yoselyn Ortega, the family’s nanny, was declared fit to stand trial for the murders of Lulu and Leo. Marina Krim has told police she came home from Nessie’s swim practice and found her two other kids dead in a bathtub while Ortega stood nearby stabbing herself in the throat.
Ortega has not entered a plea. She is currently being held without bail in a New York City jail.
