A New Jersey tech 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.

Paul Caneiro, 51, was charged with four counts of murder as well as arson and two weapons violations in the deaths of his 50-year-old brother, Keith, along with Keith’s wife, Jennifer, and their two children, at their Colts Neck estate, about 50 miles south of New York City. They were shot, stabbed or both.
 
“This one is the most brutal case I’ve seen in my experience here,” said Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni.
 
Caneiro’s motive “was financial in nature,” stemming from two businesses — a computer systems company called Square One and a pest control business — he and his brother jointly ran in Asbury Park, the prosecutor said. He declined to elaborate, saying the investigation was incomplete.
