They bent over backwards for their nanny, and she repaid them in blood.
The parents of two butchered Upper West Side kids asked their financially strapped nanny to do simple housework as a way to earn more money â but all that did was enrage the woman, law-enforcement sources told The Post.
âShe said something like, âIâm paid to watch the children, not clean up and do housework,â â a law-enforcement source said of Yoselyn Ortegaâs statements to cops after she woke up from a medically induced coma Sunday.
âThere was friction between her and the family.â
In Ortegaâs brief statement to police, she said her employers had arranged to give her an extra five hours a week in housekeeping work to help her make more money, law-enforcement sources said.
But she griped that the new schedule interfered with her doctorâs appointments. âThey were asking her to clean, to do housework. She was unhappy about that,â the source added.
And her work was suffering.
Marina and Kevin Krim were concerned about Ortegaâs job performance in the month before the Oct. 25 murders and told the nanny they trusted like family that she had to improve or they would need to replace her, sources said.
âShe was told that if she didnât improve her work, she would be let go,â a law-enforcement source said.
The woman also asked cops about her own family after waking from the coma, but not Lucia, 6, and Leo, 2, whom she is accused of slaughtering, sources have said. Ortega, 50, fell back under sedation before she could be interviewed further, and soon after the family contacted a defense lawyer.
