The nanny accused of fatally stabbing two children in her care on the Upper West Side of Manhattan is due in court Friday.

Police say Yoselyn Ortega killed 6-year-old Lucia Krim and her 2-year-old brother Leo last October in the family's apartment. A judge ruled she is fit to stand trial, although the defense claimed she is delusional and unable to understand the charges against her. Earlier this month, parents Marina and Kevin Krim announced on the Facebook page dedicated to their children that they have welcomed a baby boy.

"We are very excited to share with you that Felix Harrison Krim, all 8 pounds, 10 ounces, and 21.5 inches of him, arrived today. Marina, Felix and all of us are healthy and happy. Thank you all so much for your support!"

The Krim's first announced the pregnancy on their Facebook page and are also holding a benefit to honor their children through their foundation next month.
