NEW YORK (AP) — The parents of two children who were found stabbed to death in a bathtub last year on Manhattan's Upper West Side say they've taken solace in their family to heal.

Kevin and Marina Krim spoke Wednesday evening at a fundraiser for their nonprofit, the Lulu and Leo Fund. It's named after their two children killed last October.

Nanny Yoselyn Ortega has been charged with murder in the deaths. She has pleaded not guilty. Marina Krim discovered her children when she returned from picking up a third child Nessie from a swim lesson.

Kevin Krim said Wednesday they've found a reason to go on by turning to each other. He said the arts were important to Lulu and Leo, and the fund is aimed at giving money to arts programs.
