Yoselyn Ortega, a 50-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen, is accused of stabbing to death two children in her care at a New York Upper West Side apartment on Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012. Yoselyn Ortega was in critical condition Friday with what police said were self-inflicted knife wounds, and investigators were unable to question her, in part because she was still breathing with the help of a tube.

    The nanny suspected of stabbing two young children to death in a Manhattan apartment last month was arrested and charged with two counts each of first- and second-degree murder Saturday. The New York deputy police commissioner said Yoselyn Ortega was arrested after officers conducted a bedside interview at Weill Cornell Medical Center, where the 50-year-old remains hospitalized and under police guard. Ortega recently awoke from a medically induced coma.
