New Jersey Man Charged With Killing Brother, Family In Colts Neck

Caneiro was also accused of setting his own home on fire. The charges were first laid out Thursday morning in a complaint filed in Colts Neck Township, New Jersey, records show.

Paul Caneiro, 51, was charged with four counts of murder, as well as arson and two weapons violations, in the death of his 50-year-old brother, Keith, along with Keith's wife, Jennifer, and their two children, at their Colts Neck estate, about 50 miles south of New York City.

Paul Caneiro has now been charged with murdering his brother Keith Caneiro, sister-in-law Jennifer Caneiro, 11-year-old nephew Jessie, and 8-year-old niece Sophia. Medical examiners had not determined causes of death for them as of yesterday afternoon.

The joint investigation by the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office, Colts Neck and Ocean Township police departments has expanded to include the FBI, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), New Jersey State Police, New Jersey Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory, Monmouth County Sheriff's Office and Monmouth County Fire Marshal's Office.

It was not immediately clear whether the arson charge listed in the complaint filed Thursday relates to the Ocean Township fire or is an additional arson charge. His family survived the fire. He said the fire was started in two exterior locations at each end of the house.

That same day, about seven hours later, his brother's mansion in nearby Colts Neck, New Jersey, also burst into flames. As a locally owned news organization, TAPinto through its advertisers is able to publish online, objective news 24/7 at no charge.

He remains in jail without bail and is scheduled to appear in Monmouth County Superior Court in Freehold, New Jersey, on Friday.

Paul Caneiro's attorneys, Robert Honecker and Mitchell Ansell, said in a statement Thursday their client maintained his innocence and that his family "means more to him than anything else in this world". "His family fully support his defense of this charge".

Grammiccioni said he was omitting a lot of details because of the pending case, but this is his rough description of the murders.

Paul Caneiro's wife and daughters escaped unharmed in the Ocean Township blaze. The area is still fenced off. Friends and loved ones of the Caneiro family have placed signs, photographs and flowers at the site as a memorial to the family.

Paul and Keith Canario were partners in a technology consulting firm and a pest control business in Asbury Park. A 2007 filing indicates that Keith was the company's president. "Have no reason to believe that's the case, think it was targeted".
