A New Jersey man and his family died Tuesday as a fiery fire engulfed their $1.5 million mansion.
NBC New York reports that two adults and two children died after the fire consumed their Colts Neck, New Jersey, home. Authorities identified the victims as Keith Caneiro, 50, his wife Jennifer Caneiro, 45, and their two young children, a son and daughter.
Keith Caneiro, the CEO of a tech company Square One, was found on the lawn of the home with a fatal gunshot wound. Authorities found Jennifer Caneiro and the children inside the home, severely burned.
Authorities have not yet specified whether the victim’s gunshot wound was self-inflicted or caused by someone else, but his brother, identified as Paul Caneiro, has been charged with arson and accused of setting his own home on fire. Earlier that morning, Paul Caneiro’s Ocean Township home caught on fire as well, but no one was injured.
According to a criminal complaint, Paul Caneiro’s wife, Susan, and their two daughters were inside the home.
Investigators indicated the two fires were connected, according to ABC, but they declined to give further details.
Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni stated authorities will hold a press conference on Wednesday afternoon to provide additional details.
