Yoselyn Ortega’s on-going trials reveal that even before the Krim slayings there were a lot of red flags concerning the killer nanny’s change of behavior. Taking the stand on her behalf, Ortega’s sister claimed that her sister was possessed by a supernatural entity that enthralled her into committing the murders and that killer nanny slaying could have been averted if the parents paid more attention to their employee.
Killer Nanny Claimed being Taunted by ‘Black Man’
As Yoselyn Ortega’s trial continues, judge and jury have begun interviewing key witnesses. This week, Miladys Garcia, Yoselyn Ortega’s 64-year-old sister from the Dominican Republic, took the witness stand.
According to her statement, Garcia spoke on the phone with the killer nanny hours before she slit the throats of 2-year-old Leo Krim and 6-year-old Lulu Krim. Ortega’s sister described the woman’s voice as not being her own, grinding her teeth at regular intervals like she was possessed by something truly evil.
More than that, the woman declared that her sister often spoke of a disembodied entity, whom she dubbed the ‘black man’ that spoke evil things to her and even threatened to kill both families.
Kevin Krim, the father of Leo and Lulu, was outraged when the killer nanny’s sister claimed that he and his wife were responsible for the slayings, as they’ve ignored the telltale signs of her murderous insanity.
The prosecutor riposted and accused Miladys of keeping silent about her sister’s behavioral changes. However, the woman declared that her sister had bouts of melancholy and sadness and that she didn’t think they were serious.
At the beginning of the trial, the killer nanny’s attorney pleaded not guilty on the reason of insanity. If Ortega is found guilty on these legal grounds, she might spend the rest of her life behind bars.
