Ortega received two life sentences without the possibility of parole Monday.

Parents Marina and Kevin Krim read victim impact statements in courts, sharing their memories of children they lost far too early.

"She tried to destroy what Kevin and I set out to build, a happy family," Marina said.

Prosecutors had described how Ortega was supposed to bring Lulu to the dance class, but instead brought her and Leo to their apartment. There, she used two kitchen knives to slash them to death. Then she placed them in the tub, authorities said.

By the time Marina Krim arrived home, Ortega had sliced her own wrists and plunged a knife into her throat.

The six-woman, six-man jury rejected her defense team's contention that Ortega was mentally unfit and was in a "psychotic" and "dissociative" state when she attacked the children.

Ortega claimed to hear the voice of the devil and was following his instructions.

At her trial, jurors had listened for weeks to grim testimony about the violent killings of the children. Their mother had returned home from swimming lessons with their 3-year-old sister, only to find the two children dead in a bathtub.

As the verdicts were read, Kevin Krim broke down in tears. Ortega sat expressionless at the defense table.
