De­ten­tion hear­ing set for brother of man­sion fire vic­tim

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - NATION & WORLD -

The brother of one of the four homi­cide vic­tims found at a burn­ing New Jer­sey man­sion is due in court on al­le­ga­tions he set fire to his own house.

A de­ten­tion hear­ing for Paul Caneiro is sched­uled for Wed­nes­day. He’s charged with ag­gra­vated ar­son.

Mon­mouth County pros­e­cu­tors say Caneiro set his Ocean Town­ship home on fire while his fam­ily was inside.

All safely es­caped. Pros­e­cu­tors will seek to have him held un­til his trial.

Caneiro’s at­tor­ney has said Caneiro is in­no­cent.

The fire at Caneiro’s home oc­curred a few hours be­fore the blaze at the Colts Neck home of his brother Keith was re­ported. Keith Caneiro and his fam­ily were found dead.
