Miladys Garcia, the sister of the accused murderer Yoslyn Ortega (see photo), said the parents are to blame for the murders of their two children.
The older sister of the New York City nanny who slaughtered two young children testified Monday that the parents were to blame for their children to kill.
Miladys Garcia, Yoslyn Ortega’s sister, said Kevin Krim and his wife Marina have to recognize that Ortega was “unravelling”, and its a holiday before they slaughtered the children in the Krims’ apartment in Manhattan, in October 2012, according to the New York Post.
“Why don’t parents realize this and take her to him — they saw it,” Garcia said, according to the newspaper.

When you are prompted by a new officer of justice, to clarify her statement that the Krims’ must have seen, the signs, Garcia replied, “Yes, because they were the ones at the sight of her.”
“Give her a vacation if you see that they are losing weight, say” Yosie, you’re not yourself.” Even a week’s holiday. Say, ‘Go, Yosie, you are very thin,'” she added, as the children’s father sat in the gallery to listen, reported the paper.
Garcia also said she spoke to her sister just hours before the grisly murders, in which she said It sounded like she had something evil” and that it was like talking to a “demon”, the New York Daily News reported.
When pressed on why they did not seek help after the disturbing phone call, Garcia said she, “didn’t think it was that serious.”

Raquel Perez, a friend of Ortega said in his testimony that they were “very sad and cried a lot” prior to the murders, the Daily News reported.
No one denies that Ortega murdered 2-year-old Leo Krim and his 6-year-old sister, Lucia, who went by Lulu, on that day. The central question of the study is the reason why they did it and whether or not they are also mentally ill to be held responsible.
The prosecutors have said Ortega planned murders, have to wait until she was alone in the apartment, and the careful selection of two knives from the kitchen for the dispatch of its costs. But they have also conceded that they have no clear motive.
