Paul Caneiro (pictured in an undated mugshot) has been charged with arson for allegedly setting his own house on fire seven hours before his brother, sister-in-law and niece and nephew were found murdered inside their burning mansion 

The brother of a New Jersey millionaire who was found murdered along with his family in their burning mansion on Tuesday has been charged with setting a fire at his own house hours before the killings. 

Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni said yesterday: “We have no reason to believe anyone in the community is in any danger at this time.”

Brother of Man Killed in Suspicious N.J. Fire Charged With Arson for Setting His Own Home Ablaze

Paul Caneiro, 51, was charged with aggravated arson for the fire that was reported at his own home in Ocean Township, New Jersey, on Tuesday at 5am. 

THE BROTHER of tech millionaire Keith Caneiro, who was found dead with his family after a New Jersey fire, has been charged with arson.

He has not been charged for the murders of his brother and business partner Keith, 50, or those of Keiths wife Jennifer, 45, and their two children, Jesse, 11, and Sophia, eight. 

Keith, 50, his wife Jennifer Caneiro, 45, and their two children were yesterday found dead after a fire at their mansion in Colts Neck.

They were found dead at their home in Colts Neck, 12 miles from Pauls home, after a fire was reported there at 12.38pm. 

One neighbour said of the fire at Pauls home: “He said it must have been a gas leak, he had tears in his eyes. Susan was devastated.

Keith was shot at least twice in the back and head and his wife and children, eight-year-old Sophia and 11-year-old Jesse, had been stabbed, according to NBC.  

Keith was found with gunshot wounds outside the home, according to reports, which at this stage do not appear to be self-inflicted.

At a press conference on Wednesday, Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni said: We cant charge people unless we have evidence. We cant even send largely our investigators in there. 

It remains unclear if the family was murdered before the fire was reported at Pauls house or afterwards. The fire at Pauls $670,000, four-bedroom home was reported at 5.01am.

It is unknown who called 911, but he and his wife Susan escaped unharmed along with their two adult daughters.

Neighbors told DailyMail.com on Wednesday they were shocked that he had been arrested and described him as a houseproud homeowner who previously boasted about being a member of an expensive gun club. 

One man, who did not wish to be named, said he believed it was unlikely that Paul would set his own house on fire because he had worked so hard on it.  

Police told NJ Advance Media that Keith Caneiro was found dead on the front lawn of his home from a gunshot wound. The gunshot wound is not believed to be self-inflicted. Caneiro’s 45-year-old wife Jennifer and their two young children, a boy and a girl, were found dead inside. Their bodies were “burned severely,” according to Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni.

He also said the family seemed genuinely devastated by the fire and were grieving over the house but that Paul made a remark about being blamed for it which surprised him.

He said, They make it seem like its your fault. I was like, huh? Why the hell would you say that? If Id been him, Id be thinking, my house is burned, how do I fix it?

Thats what I would have been thinking – not that they made me feel like I did it. And even if they did make me feel that way, Id still be thinking of the financial impact that it would have me.

No charges have been filed in the arson of Keith Caneiro’s $1.5 million home and the death of his family. Police said they are following up leads but Gramiccioni insisted that its important to emphasize that we have no reason to believe that anyone in the community is in any danger at this time.”

We went over to see what happened. He was sitting in his car with his wife and girls. The first thing he said to us was, Im in shock. He was visibly shaken. If it was fake, youd have to be a pretty damned good actor. It was shaking, nervous, he said. 

Neighbors said Paul, shown in his drivers license, was a proud gun owner who once told them he had an AR-15 

His house is loaded with surveillance cameras. He also has infrared on both floors, scanning the whole house. Hes nuts with technology, everything over the top. 

(Newser) – A convoluted story out of New Jersey, where police have charged Paul Caneiro with aggravated arson in connection with a fire at his own home—one that the Asbury Park Press reports occurred seven hours before a fatal fire at his brother's mansion. Around 5am Tuesday, firefighters responded to Paul Caneiro's Ocean Township home and put out flames on the roof. Around 12:30pm, fire broke out at brother Keith Caneiro's home 12 miles away in Colts Neck, where police say a quadruple homicide occurred: Keith Caneiro, 50—found on the front lawn with a gunshot wound that didn't appear to be self-inflicted, per NJ.com—died along with his wife, 45-year-old Jennifer Caneiro, and their son and daughter, who were found inside, a law enforcement source tells the Asbury Park Press. The New York Times describes both children as under the age of 10.

He told me he spent $140,000 building his deck. Its stainless steel screws, its so over-the-top for this neighborhood.

Thats why I keep saying theres no way he lit fire to his own house. Hes so passionate about it. Its his baby. So to torch it? If it turns out that thats the truth, Ill be totally surprised, the man added.

He also remarked on how he was ambitious but did not have the same level of success as his younger brother. 

Hes a guy who was enamored with financial success. He liked the good stuff. Hes got his girls Porches for their first cars.

That doesnt fit the profile of a person who lives in this neighborhood. I mean the Porsche dealer comes and brings cars by, and tries to sell him cars at his house. Ive seen it happen.

His brother can afford a Colts Neck place on a piece of land. [Paul]s a big shot in an upper-middle class neighborhood, he said.

Prosecutors say Paul (right after a car accident which gave him a limp) set fire to his home using gasoline while his wife Susan, (center left) and daughters Marissa, 23, (second from right) and Katelyn, 26, (left) were inside the home 

Neighbors told DailyMail.com Paul was house proud and had boasted about spending $140,000 on his deck. They said he was a big fish in a small pond who lavished his daughters with Porsches but who never lived up to his younger brothers financial success. Paul is pictured with his oldest daughter 

After the fire at his house, Paul and his wife Susan stood outside for around seven hours, according to his neighbors. 

He said it must have been a gas leak, he had tears in his eyes. Susan was devastated, one neighbor, who did not want to be named, told NJ.com.

After the fire at Keiths house was reported, emergency crews and news cameras flocked to the scene. 

Videos showed smoke pouring out of the home as the fire teams worked to get the blaze under control.   

The mansion in Colts Neck was torched by the fire. There were dozens of police there on Wednesday. The area is affluent and considered a safe haven for wealthy families 

Jennifer and Keith paid off their mortgage two years ago. Their home is in an exclusive neighborhood and sits on nine acres of land
