A candlelight vigil was held in Thousand Oaks Sunday night for the two children stabbed to death in New York, allegedly by their nanny.

The mother of 6-year-old Lucia Krim and her 2-year-old brother, Leo, came home to find the bodies in the bathtub. Police say that on the evening of Oct. 25, while the children's mother was out with a third child, the nanny, 50-year-old Yoselyn Ortega, repeatedly stabbed the two kids before stabbing and wounding herself.

The father of the children, Kevin Krim, grew up in Thousand Oaks. Friends of the Krim Family came together outside St. Paschal Baylon Church to offer their support and condolences.

"We all on one level or another have experienced this loss with them as a community and we just want to show our love and support," said Kimberly Mutolo of Thousand Oaks.

Ortega had recovered from her wounds enough by Saturday to be interviewed by police. She was charged with first- and second-degree murder.
