Charges have been filed in the Colts Neck mansion murders and the motive was reportedly "financial in nature." Police have charged Paul Caneiro for killing his brother, sister-in-law, niece, and nephew. 

Last week Keith Caneiro had been found dead outside his blazing house with a gunshot wound. After firefighters managed to subdue the flames, they discovered the bodies of Jennifer Caneiro and the couple's two kids inside the mansion.

That same day, Keith reportedly set fire to his own house while his wife and children were inside it in an attempt to make it look like the whole Caneiro family was targeted and to get rid of evidence. He was then charged with aggravated arson. 

Now the 51-year-old is facing charges that include four counts of murder, possession of a firearm, and possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose.
