THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (KTLA) -- A candlelight vigil was held in Thousand Oaks Sunday to remember two children stabbed to death in New York, allegedly by their nanny.

Police say Yoselyn Ortega, 50, repeatedly stabbed 6-year-old Lucia Krim and her 2-year-old brother Leo on the evening of Oct. 25 before wounding herself.

The children's mother, who had been out with a third child, returned home to find the bodies in the bathtub.

The father of the children, Kevin Krim, played football at Thousand Oaks High School, and his father still lives in Camarillo.

Friends of the Krim family gathered Sunday evening outside St. Paschal Baylon Church to offer their support and condolences.

"We just wanted to show our love and support and we felt that sometimes words just aren't enough," said organizer Kimberly Mutolo.

"We wanted to be there just to show our light and our support as a group and as a whole," she said.

Ortega, who had worked for the Krim family for two years, has been charged with first- and second-degree murder.

She had recovered from her wounds enough to be interviewed by police on Saturday.

Friends and family say she had been struggling financially, but there still isn't a clear motive for the stabbings.
