Kevin Krim, the father of the children Ortega murdered, 6-year-old Lucia "Lulu" Krim and 2-year-old Leo Krim, gave an emotional impact statement, criticizing Ortega's family for lying about her background so she could get a job.
On Monday, mother Marina Krim, who found her children mortally wounded in their bathtub, told a judge that Ortega tried to destroy the Krim family but failed and instead had destroyed her own family. When Ortega didn't arrive on time Krim grew concerned and returned to her home to check on the children.
Ortega's defense attorney argued that the former nanny suffered from a years long mental illness and had asked the jury to find her not guilty by reason of insanity.
The 55-year-old Ortega is from the Dominican Republic.
The only time Ortega showed any emotion was when she whimpered that she deserved mercy because now she was suddenly "sorry".
"The defendant is an evil and utterly unsafe narcissist", he said.
"The defendant knows nothing of responsibility or remorse, " he added.

"I ask for a great deal of forgiveness - to God, to Marina, to Kevin", she said, wearing an oatmeal top and her dark hair scraped back into a ponytail. "We'll miss them all our lives".
Over the eight-week trial, jurors were subjected to stomach-churning photos and testimony spanning the children's final moments, the family's heartbreak and Ortega's alleged descent into madness.
Jurors and members of the audience also wept up when Kevin and Marina - the first and last witnesses on the prosecution's direct case - took the witness stand.
Judge Carro was not moved. The parents hired her after a relative of Ortega's provided them with a fabricated reference claiming Ortega had nannied for a child of hers who never existed.
At Ortega's trial, Kevin Krim testified that when his plane landed in NY that night in October 2012, he was met by police, who escorted him to the hospital where the bodies of his dead children had been brought, along with his wife and surviving child. According to lawyers, she heard voices, and she was repeatedly visited by a vision in which "her body was possessed by Satan".
"She did it intentionally with a full understanding of exactly what it was she was doing-every stab, every slash", ADA Stuart Silberg said in his closing. The two children had been stabbed multiple times with a kitchen knife, reports The New York Times. Krim frantically tried to reach Ortega, who had worked for the family for about two years.
