NBC

Police responded to a second incident of suspicious powder in Darien.

Two suspects have been arrested in the murder of a northern New Jersey woman found fatally stabbed in her home.

The Essex County Prosecutor's office says 18-year-old Rakeem Scott of Newark was arrested Thursday in Boonton. He faces murder, robbery, weapons and child endangerment-related charges in the death of Sandy Yuen.

The 57-year-old Yuen was found fatally stabbed on Sept. 2 in her West Orange home. Police have not released more details on the killing.

Scott is being held on $750,000 bail. It's not immediately known if he has an attorney.

A second suspect, 21-year-old Carline Inginac of West Orange, was arraigned Wednesday on murder, child endangerment and weapons-related charges.

She remains in custody on $500,000 bail. The public defender's office, which is representing her, did not immediately comment.
