Police said Paul Caneiro used gasoline to fuel the early morning fire at his two-storey Colonial in Ocean Township, about 16 kilometres from his brother's US$1.5 million home in Colts Neck.

Authorities have filed charges against the brother of the man whose body was found along with his wife and children after their New Jersey mansion was set on fire.

Paul Caneiro has now been charged with murdering his brother Keith Caneiro, sister-in-law Jennifer Caneiro, 11-year-old nephew Jessie, and 8-year-old niece Sophia.

A New Jersey technology executive was charged Thursday with killing his brother and the brother's family over a business dispute, and then setting fire to their mansion and his own house in an attempt to cover up the crimes.

In a story November 22 about fires at the homes of two New Jersey brothers, The Associated Press erroneously reported the distance between the homes.

A neighbor who was not identified in the report told the Daily Mail they saw Paul and Susan Caneiro at their Ocean Township home after the fire broke out. Colts Neck, New Jersey, where Keith Caneiro and his family lived, is an affluent community around 50 miles south of New York City.

Caneiro's motive "was financial in nature", stemming from two businesses - a computer systems company called Square One and a pest control business - that he and his brother jointly ran in Asbury Park, the prosecutor said.

She later apologized "to anyone that was offended". "If he invited me to a public hanging , I would be on the front row ". If elected, Espy would be the first black person elected to the Senate from the state since the era of Reconstruction.

The law firm representing Mr Caneiro said they would not comment until after the prosecutor's news conference.

Gramiccioni says Paul Caneiro shot his brother multiple times on the front lawn of the Willow Brook Road mansion in the early morning hours of November 20.

Caneiro, 51, was charged with four counts of murder, one count of aggravated arson, one count of possession of a firearm and one count of possession of a knife, Gramiccioni said. His family survived the fire.

Prosecutors so far have been mum on a motive - but are set to announce the fresh set of charges against Caneiro at a press conference later Thursday morning.

"My client maintains his innocence on this charge and any other potential charges", he told CNN on Saturday.

The fire that destroyed Keith Caneiro's home was reported at around 12:30 p.m. that same day, according to authorities. He is also charged with later setting fire to his own house before rousing his sleeping wife and daughters, who were not injured in the blaze.

The two brothers were business partners. Funeral services for the family are planned Sunday.
