The nanny accused of killing two children and attempting to kill herself has gained new support.

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

Now a Facebook page titled "Supporting Innocence of Nanny Yoselyn Ortega" has been created to try and garner support for the woman who admitted to harming the children. The Examiner reports that the site is run by a family member of Ortega.

A message on the page, which has 88 likes as of Tuesday, reads: "This site is to show support for the innocence of Nanny Yoselyn Ortega. The death of the Lucia & Leo Krim is tragic, please post any information that you believe will help to prove her innocence and bring the real killer(s) to be arrested."

Those in charge of the page have even claimed that the children's mother was responsible for their deaths and say Ortega deserves her day in court.

More details have slowly been released about the incident.

According to Radar Online, a source close to the case reported that Marina Krim and Ortega had an "epic argument" the day before the killing.

The source claimed that Ortega reportedly said "when she left at the end of the day before the murders, Marina ignored her when she said good-bye and this made her very, very angry."

Mrs. Krim supposedly felt that Ortega wasn't taking care of the kids properly and feeding them too much junk food.

During questioning, Ortega told police that she was angered that the Krim family wanted her to do housework.

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

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

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 on Friday. "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. The mom of three returned to her home after Ortega and the two children were missing from meeting Marina and Nessie at a nearby pool.

The father of the family, Kevin Krim, is a CNBC executive and was returning from a business trip in San Francisco at the time of the killings.
