Calling the New York City nanny who stabbed a 2-year-old boy and a 6-year-old girl to death “pure evil,” a judge sentenced Yoselyn Ortega on Monday to life in state prison, without the possibility of parole.
Ortega stabbed Leo and Lucia Krim to death with a 13-inch kitchen knife in the bathroom of their family’s Upper West Side apartment on October 25, 2012. In April, she was convicted of two counts of first degree murder and two counts of second degree murder.
Ortega was hired by the children’s’ parents, Marina and Kevin Krim, in 2010, when Marina became pregnant with the couple’s third child, Leo, according to evidence presented during Ortega’s trial. Kevin Krim, a digital media executive at CNBC, believed hiring the nanny was necessary, he testified, because he was working 12-hour days.
On the day of the murders, Krim was on a plane returning from a business trip to the West Coast

Charges against a South Florida mother were upgraded on Monday after her 1-year-old son died after she allegedly refused to get him treatment after he suffered severe burns. Christina Hurt, 35, has now been charged with second-degree murder in addition to aggravated child abuse, according to Local 10 News. The State Attorney’s Office announced they have plans to further upgrade the death to first-degree murder.
According to an arrest report, Hurt said her 10-year-old daughter tried to give the baby, Ethan Coley, a bath. His 4-year-old brother filled the tub with hot water, according to Hurt’s comments in the police report.
Coley suffered severe burns all over his body. According to the Miami Herald, Hurt didn’t call 911 or drive her son to the hospital. Instead, she allegedly just consulted Google. She rubbed aloe on the burns, gave Coley Tylenol, and texted images of his injuries to friends, asking for help.

Brooklyn resident Sam Saia was reportedly assaulted on the New York City subway system after asking a fellow straphanger for more leg room. The attacker has since been jailed, but Saia is now facing a round of death threats from extremists who say she is now getting “a taste of reality and diversity.”
According to the New York Daily News, Saia was assaulted by Derek Smith after telling him he was “manspreading” (a nickname given to the way men take up excessive amount of space on subway seats). Smith had launched into a profane tirade during the assault: “B*tch, you ain’t nothing! I’ve raped white b*tches like you, you f*cking c*nt!” he reportedly yelled. A fellow rider rushed to Saia’s aid and forcibly ejected Smith from the train.
Video of the incident was caught by other passengers and shared on social media:
Smith was arrested on Saturday and charged on Sunday in Brooklyn

Conspiracy theorist Lane Davis, who had previously interned for the controversial Breitbart editor and alt-right figurehead Milo Yiannopoulos, has been accused of the murder of his father, Charles Davis.
According to The New York Daily News, police received a call about Lane and his father involved in an altercation. Lane’s mother, who made the call, said her son was “ranting about stuff on the internet” and calling them both “leftists” and “pedophiles.”
“He’s not physically threatening us or anything,” Catherine told the dispatcher in the audio of a call obtained by the Daily Beast. “He just gets out of control and he’s ranting about stuff from the internet.”
A second call was made minutes later, with Lane’s mother now reporting that Lane’s father had been stabbed. Lane then walked outside, awaiting the arrival of police. A third call was made by Lane’s mother: “He’s dead, he’s dead, he’s dead.”
The argument between Lane and

In a trial for a man accused of killing his newly adopted 18-month-old baby, a pediatrician explained that the toddler was likely thrown against a wall or a hard floor.
Elsie Scully-Hicks was killed in May 2016. Fitness instructor Matthew Scully-Hicks, 31, has been charged with killing her.
According to The Guardian, Dr. Stephen Rose gave testimony on Thursday, detailing the injuries Elsie suffered. In addition to being shaken violently, Rose said she was likely “rocked backwards and forwards so that her head was flexed down onto her chest and flexed backwards.”
He said that damage probably caused her brain to bleed. “This mechanism would then cause the subdural bleeding, or the bleeds around the brain, and the retinal hemorrhages and also it would cause her to stop breathing,” Rose said to the jury.
The 18-month old also suffered a skull fracture.
“There must have been a cause of the fracture, skull fractures don’t

A 19-year-old girl calling herself “Dr. Kitty” allegedly ran an unlicensed plastic surgery clinic out of her basement, Toronto Police said.
Dr. Kitty – in reality, Jingyi Wang of Toronto — advertised her plastic surgery services and at least one woman responded, getting a procedure performed on her, police claim.
“Within a few weeks, the woman developed an infection and had to seek medical help from a licensed plastic surgeon in Toronto,” police said.
The victim reportedly received corrective surgery and later alerted police to the sketchy doc, who searched Wang’s home and arrested her.
Wang was charged with aggravated assault and made her first court appearance on Saturday.
Sketchy plastic surgery might seem like a joke, but Wang is far from the first fake surgeon to get charged with very real crimes. One woman was convicted earlier this year for administering illegal silicone butt injections closed up with super glue.

Things really seem to be over between Tiny Harris and her possibly soon-to-be ex husband T.I..
In an interview with Power 105.1 earlier this week, T.I. opened up about their impending divorce, saying that he believed he could be a better best friend to Tiny than a husband.
“It seems to me that marriage and what marriage means and what marriage does… It’s just one of those things that’s going to distract me and deter me,” he explained. “And that could be selfish, but ultimately, I’m the patriarch of this family. And it’s my responsibility to take us onward and upward. I just have a purpose and I don’t always have the time to do the thoughtful and considerate things that a husband should do.”
Meanwhile, Tiny and T.I.’s alleged side chick, Bernice Burgos, were slinging mud at each other on Instagram. Shortly after T.I.’s statements on their marriage started gaining attention,

The owner of a Dairy Queen franchise in Zion, Illinois is facing serious consequences after allegedly calling a customer the N-word in front of her children. The store owner denied the allegations despite police saying he “proudly” talked about it to them later.
This all went down last week, after customer Deianeira Ford demanded a refund for an order that wasn’t complete. The situation went viral after Ford posted about it on Facebook. Her post claimed that when she asked the owner his name, he first said it was “‘Bill Clinton‘” and then chidingly commented, “‘better yet, I’m Donald Trump,'” and told her to go back where she came from. “That was the hardest thing. He did it with my children in the back,” said Ford to the Chicago Tribune.
“[He] boastfully told me he would be happy to go to jail over the issue and proudly admitted to calling Ford a slur. He added that
