Miladys Ortega shows a photograph of her sister, Yoselyn Ortega, front center, taken some time between 1985 and 1990, at her home in Santiago, Dominican Republic, Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012. Yoselyn Ortega, a 50-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen, is accused of stabbing to death two children in her care at a New York Upper West Side apartment on Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012. Yoselyn Ortega was in critical condition Friday with what police said were self-inflicted knife wounds, and investigators were unable to question her, in part because she was still breathing with the help of a tube.
