Monmouth County District Attorney Christopher Gramiccioni has scheduled a press conference Thursday morning to announce an update on the quadruple homicide committed last week in Colts Neck.
The update will take place a little more than a week after the death of 50-year-old Keith Caneiro, his wife Jennifer, 45, and the two children of the couple, Jesse, 11, and Sophia, 8, before a violent fire Willow Brook Road mansion.
It also comes a week after Caneiro's brother, Paul Caneiro, was charged with arson for allegedly burning his home in Ocean Township a few hours before the authorities responded to the Colts Neck fire. .
Authorities say Paul Caneiro, 51, used gasoline to light Tilton Drive's home in flames while his wife and two daughters were inside. They were not injured. His lawyer maintained the innocence of his client and said that Paul Caneiro loved his family.
Gramiccioni, in a press event announcing the arrest of Paul Caneiro last week, said the detectives were continuing their search to determine whether the two fires were related.
He said that the Caneiro family was "targeted" but that it was an isolated incident and that there was no threat to the public.
The announcement of Thursday is scheduled for 11 hours.
