An Upper West Side nanny in New York stabbed a 1-year-old boy and 6-year-old girl to death inside their apartment Thursday afternoon before cutting her own throat, police said.
Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said the mother of the children returned to her West 75th Street home after a swimming lesson with a third child, a 3-year-old girl.
The apartment was dark when the mother and daughter entered, and the mother went to look for her two other children, said Kelly.
"She goes downstairs to the lobby, assuming the nanny may have gone out with the children," Kelly told reporters in a briefing Thursday night. "She asks the doorman if in fact they have gone out, and he says 'No.' She goes back up, the apartment is dark, and she goes into the bathroom."
That's where she discovered her two children stabbed in the bathtub, Kelly said. They've been identified as Lucia and Leo Krim.
