Bail is set at $1 million for the woman accused of killing an 88-year-old woman in Irvington.    

Authorities on Friday charged 45-year-old Yvonne Walker with murder, robbery and weapons offenses.     

Walker stabbed Casetta Blunt multiple times. Walker regularly came to Blunt's home to do chores, authorities say.     

Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray says Blunt was best known in the community for tending her garden and being kind to others.     

It's not known if Walker has hired a lawyer.
