The brother of a man who was found shot dead outside his burning New Jersey mansion as part of an apparent quadruple homicide tried to burn his own house down earlier as his wife and daughters were inside.

In a criminal complaint, police said that he “set fire to his residence by using gasoline and igniting the gasoline causing the residence to catch fire while his wife and two daughters were inside.”

Firefighters responded to the fire in Colts Neck, which is an upscale community around 50 miles South of New York City around 12:30 p.m., and it was still burning hours later. Video showed firefighters battling the blaze as smoke poured from the roof of the two-story home, which is surrounded by fields and includes a large swimming pool.

Paul J. Caneiro is the suspect and appeared in court on Oct. 28 on the aggravated arson charges and faces between 5 to 10 years in prison.
