Murder charges filed against brother in mansion fire slayings

Man charged with killing brother’s family after Colts Neck mansion fire: records

As for a motive for the murders, Gramiccioni said it appears to be related to financial issues stemming from the brothers' joint business ventures. The charges were first laid out Thursday morning in a complaint filed in Colts Neck Township, New Jersey, records show.

Paul is now charged with four counts of murder and a new charge of aggravated arson in connection with the slayings, law enforcement sources told WNBC.

After allegedly setting the mansion on fire, Paul Caneiro took documents from the crime scene and returned to his home and started another fire, prosecutors said.

Authorities say 51-year-old Paul Caneiro killed the family in Colts Neck and then set fire to that home and his own.

During the early morning of November 20, Caneiro is alleged to have repeatedly shot and kill brother Keith, 50, outside Keith's Colts Neck estate at 15 Willow Brook Road, and then he moved inside the home to murder the rest of his family, according to the Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni, who detailed the charges at a November 29 press conference. The remaining members of the family - Keith's wife Jennifer and children Jesse, 11, and Sophia, 8 - were fatally stabbed inside the residence, Gramiccioni said.

Keith Caneiro was shot numerous times on the lawn of his mansion in Colts Neck, an affluent horse country town that is home to rock star Bruce Springsteen, and where former "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart and his wife operate an animal sanctuary.

A New Jersey man was charged Thursday in the deaths of his brother, sister-in-law and niece and nephew.

No one was injured in the Ocean Township blaze.

The woman's and the children's bodies were found severely burned inside the home, and authorities ruled out "a suicide angle", Gramiccioni said.

Attorney Robert A. Honecker had previously maintained his client was innocent and said Caneiro was "devastated by the news of his brother and his family's deaths".

Paul Caneiro was charged last week with one count of second-degree aggravated arson for allegedly trying to burn down his own Ocean Township house on November 20 while his family was inside. "He fully expects to be vindicated when this case finally resolves".

Paul and Keith Caneiro were partners as an Asbury Park technology consulting firm called Square One and a pest control company.

Keith Caniero and Paul Caneiro worked together, according to online records. Dozens of Monmouth County residents came out for a candlelight vigil honoring the family a day after their deaths. "Have no reason to believe that's the case, think it was targeted".
