Ortega didn't speak during the 10 minute proceeding, but her hand was trembling. "My client is profoundly mentally impaired and in need of medical attention," said her public assistance lawyer, Valerie Van Leer-Greenberg.
When the super and his 10-year-old son got there, they allegedly witnessed Ortega attempting to slit her throat after having fatally stabbed the two children.
Besides being upset over pay, the suspect apparently didn't like the way her employer spoke to a housekeeper.
The nanny may have been upset over pay as well as how the parents "were always telling her what to do."
The motive is unclear, but the Post has suggested there was tension between the nanny and her employers.
The suspect's son told his aunt, "Auntie, I know it couldn’t have been my mother. Those kids were like my brother and sister."
Detectives haven't been able to question Ortega, because she's in a "catatonic state."
"You don’t get how dizzying this is? This is 9/11 territory for this family. It makes no sense."
The mother had taken her 3-year-old daughter to a class, only to return to find a horrible scene.
