New evidence is forcing a delay in the detention hearing for Paul Caneiro, charged with second-degree aggravated arson in the alleged torching of his home just hours before his brother and family were murdered and their mansion set afire 15 miles away.
Caneiro, 51, has been held without bail since the Nov. 20 incident in which he allegedly set fire to his Ocean Township, N.J., house with his family inside. All escaped unharmed. His hearing was originally scheduled for Wednesday.
A few hours later his brother, 50-year-old Keith Caneiro, was found shot to death outside his burning mansion in Colts Neck, N.J., his slain wife and two children inside. No suspects have been named or charges levied in the deaths of Keith Caneeiro, his wife Jennifer,45, and their two children, Jesse, 11, and Sophia, 8.
