The Krim Family Expecting A Baby Boy

CNBC senior VP Kevin Krim and his wife Marina Krim are expecting a baby boy. The couple announced the news on the Facebook page of the Lulu & Leo Fund, a non-profit established in honor of their late children.

“Nessie can’t wait to welcome her new baby brother. We are filled with many emotions as we look to the future, but the most important one is hope,” the couple wrote.

Lulu and Leo Krim were killed by their nanny in October, 2012, discovered by their mother after returning home with their sister Nessie. It became a national story, and drew coverage from TV news organizations from across the country.

The nanny, Yoselyn Ortega, pleaded not guilty in November of that year, and was found fit for trial last month.

Nanny Pleads Not Guilty to Stabbing Children of CNBC Executive

The nanny accused of fatally stabbing the two children of CNBC senior vice president Kevin Krim pleaded not guilty Wednesday.

Yoselyn Ortega was arraigned in the hospital, where she remains with self-inflicted stab wounds, this morning. Six-year-old Lucia Krim and two-year-old Leo Krim were killed October 25 in their Upper West Side apartment.

The children were found by their mother in the dark apartment when she returned home with another child, a three-year-old daughter.

Nanny Accused of Fatally Stabbing Two Children of CNBC Executive

Crime scene tape stretches across 75th St at Columbus Ave.

New York City Police are investigating a brutal double murder on Manhattan’s Upper West Side tonight. The New York Daily News reports the victims are two of the children of Kevin Krim, a CNBC Senior VP and General Manager of Digital. The children, 6-year-old Lucia Krim and 1-year-old Leo Krim, were stabbed to death by their nanny, who then turned the knife on herself. The New York Times reports:

Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly said that the mother, Marina Krim, had left her apartment a block from Central Park at 57 West 75th Street with one of her children, a 3-year-old girl. The two other children were left with the nanny, identified as Yoselyn Ortega, 50.

When Ms. Krim returned around 5:30 p.m., the commissioner said, she found a dark apartment. She went back down to the lobby to ask the doorman if he had seen the nanny and her children. When told that they had not left the building, she returned to the apartment. She turned the lights on in the bathroom and discovered her two children in the bathtub and the nanny unconscious on the floor.

Krim (right) joined CNBC in March from Bloomberg where he was head of Bloomberg Digital. More from the Times:

Ms. Krim had worked in California for a wholesaler of powders made from exotic fruits, like acai berries and pomegranates, according to her LinkedIn profile.

A neighbor said that in New York, Ms. Krim largely devoted her time to her children. This past year she taught a weekly early-childhood art class at the Hippo Playground Parkhouse on 91st Street.

A member of the CNBC family has suffered an unimaginable loss. The sadness that we all feel for Kevin, Marina and their family is without measure. Our thoughts, prayers and unwavering support are with them all.

CNBC Taps Bloomberg’s Krim to Oversee Digital

CNBC has tapped Kevin Krim as its new GM of digital, reporting directly to CNBC president Mark Hoffman. Krim joins CNBC from Bloomberg, where he had been global head of digital, overseeing Bloomberg.com and BusinessWeek.com, among other sites.

In a note to staff, Hoffman notes that CNBC has been expanding its digital offering in recent years, adding mobile apps and new products, like the subscription CNBC Pro.

“Our digital businesses have matured to a point where we need a Digital General Manager to develop and execute a cohesive digital strategy that will take CNBC to the next level,” Hoffman wrote.

The addition of Krim will result in a management realignment. Details on that in Hoffman’s note, after the jump.
