    The lives of two children allegedly stabbed to death by their nanny last month were remembered at a memorial service in Manhattan.

    The Daily News says the parents of 6-year-old Lucia Krim and her 2-year-old brother, Leo, released a statement saying they wanted to celebrate their "beautiful lives" not just mourn them. Monday's service was held at Avery Fisher Hall.

    Police have charged 50-year-old Yoselyn Ortega with murder. She's currently recovering from self-inflicted stab wounds.

    Police say Ortega fatally stabbed the two kids in the children's Upper West Side apartment. She then stabbed herself.
