Police Saturday officially charged an Upper West Side nanny with brutally murdering the two young children left in her care.

Yoselyn Ortega, 50, remains hospitalized since the October 25 slayings. She’s charged with slashing Lucia Krim, 6, and her little brother, 2, in the bathroom of their parents’ apartment. Their mother and 3-year-old sister were at a swimming pool when the killings occurred, while their father was out of town on business.

Ortega is being charged with two counts each of murder in the first and second degree. She’s been in the hospital since the killings after cutting her neck as the children’s mother walked in and found her young ones murdered.

Police have not yet released a motive in the killings, but did say Friday the nanny complained, when she came to in the hospital, about the children’s parents expecting her to do housework along with her child care duties.

Ortega spoke with police on Saturday from her hospital bed, an NYPD spokesman said, and she was charged late Saturday afternoon. The children’s parents, CNBC executive Kevin Krim and his wife, Marina, are in seclusion along with surviving child Nessie.
