NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City nanny accused of killing two children in her care says someone else did it and the charges against her "are all lies."

Yoselyn (YOH'-sih-lihn) Ortega tells the Daily News ( ) in a jailhouse interview that she didn't kill 2-year-old Leo Krim and his 6-year-old sister, Lucia.

The children were found dead in the bathtub of their Upper West Side apartment on Oct. 25, 2012. The Krims' third child, 4-year-old Nessie, wasn't home at the time.

Ortega has pleaded not guilty to murder charges. She didn't say who else could be responsible for the killings.
