NEW YORK (AP) — A Manhattan nanny has been indicted on murder charges in the stabbing deaths of two children three weeks ago.

The New York Times (http://nyti.ms/ZEMXmC ) says the charges are in court records released Tuesday.

Six-year-old Lucia Krim and her 2-year-old brother, Leo, were killed Oct. 25 in their Upper West Side apartment. Their mother found them when she came home with the victims' 3-year-old sister.

The nanny, Yoselyn Ortega, remains hospitalized with self-inflicted stab wounds, and police have said they don't know if Ortega has a lawyer.

She's expected to be arraigned via video. The hearing has not yet been scheduled.
