Family Found Dead in NJ Mansion Fire Were Stabbed, Shot Before

New Jersey officials on Wednesday refused to say whether there was a connection between the four people found slaughtered at a smoldering New Jersey mansion and the victim's brother - who was arrested for trying to burn down his own house with his family inside. Three "badly burned" bodies were found in the house, and it's believed they belong to Caneiro's 45-year-old wife Jennifer and their two children; law enforcement sources tell NBC 4 they appear to have been stabbed.

Today his brother, Paul Caneiro, has been charged with trying to set alight to his own home 20 miles away before the incident. "I'm sure you have questions as to if they related, and that remains to be seen", Gramiccioni said Tuesday at a news conference.

The documents listed the home addresses for Keith Caneiro and Paul Caneiro, which were the sites of the fires in Colts Neck and Ocean Township, respectively. Now the man's brother has been arrested for allegedly setting fire to his own home in a neighboring town, while his own wife and daughters were inside.

It wasn't immediately known if Paul Caniero had retained an attorney.

Another neighbor told the Daily Mail they saw the Caneiros at their Ocean Township home after the fire broke out.

Gramiccioni said that investigators are exploring the possibility that this homicide is linked to the fire at a home on Tilton Drive in Ocean Township early Tuesday morning. The fire left two adults and two children dead.

Tria Says Too Much Drama With EU on Budget Harms Italian Economy
Italy argues the spending is necessary to relaunch economic growth after years of austerity. "I am also waiting for Santa Claus". Fines against Italy would be "disrespectful", he added. "We are convinced about the numbers in our budget", he said.

Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni says that Keith's body was found outside the home and that Jennifer and the children were found inside. Video showed firefighters battling the blaze as smoke poured from the roof of the two-story home, which is surrounded by fields and includes a large swimming pool.

"This family was targeted", Gramiccioni said Wednesday.

Colts Neck is a community about 50 miles south of New York City that is home to horse farms. Police are waiting on results from the medical examiner to determine causes of deaths.

Paul and Keith Caneiro are the sole officers of a company that involved the sale and service of computers, according to New Jersey business records.

Authorities gather in Colts Neck, New Jersey, to investigate the aftermath of fatal fire that killed two children and two adults. The 51-year-old was booked into the Monmouth County Jail on one count of aggravated arson, according to NJ Advance Media.
