The New York City nanny responsible for the killing of two children has been formally charged.

Yoselyn Ortega, the Dominican Republic nanny for the Krim family, was charged on Saturday with the murder of Marina and Kevin Krim's 2-year-old son Leo and 6-year-old daughter Lulu.

The two children were found stabbed and bleeding to death in the bath along with 50-year-old nanny nearby who failed to kill herself by slitting her own throat.

After Ortega recovered enough to talk to police, she was charged with two counts of first and second degree murder, according to the Huffington Post.

Ortega was questioned last week by police and said that she was angered that the Krim family wanted her to do housework.

The Daily Mail reported the New York City police officials comments on Ortega's questioning saying, "She said something like, 'I'm paid to watch the children, not clean up and do housework.'"

Authorities added, "There was friction between her and the family."

Ortega reportedly had financial troubles that led to Mr. and Mrs. Krim kindly offering extra money in exchange to do housework. However, the nanny did not take the offer well as the family planned on giving her an additional five hours a week of work which got in the way of her medical appointments.

Ortega had additional worries as her job performance fell and Marina and Kevin Krim reportedly told the nanny that she might be replaced if she didn't improve her work.

Ortega remains in the hospital where she awoke on Sunday after falling into a coma from slitting her wrists and throat. She was arraigned Saturday from her New York hospital bed, according to CNN.

On Oct. 25, Marina Krim returned to her Upper West Side apartment in New York in the evening to find both of her children dead in the bathtub at the hands of her nanny bleeding nearby. 

Police say they believe Ortega started cutting herself when Krim returned home.

"We believe now that the nanny began to stab herself as the woman entered the room," said Police Commissioner Ray Kelly. "We initially thought that had already been done but now information is coming out that she did it as the mother entered the bathroom."

Marina arrived at her Manhattan home with her three-year-old daughter Nessie who was with her at the time of the attack, according to the New York Post. The mom of three had returned to her home after Ortega and the two children were missing from meeting Marina and Nessie at a nearby pool.
