Brother charged in murders pleads not guilty to fraud charge

August 5, 2019

FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey man charged with killing his brother and the brother’s wife and two children has pleaded not guilty to insurance fraud.

Paul Caneiro’s (kah-NEH’-rohz) public defender entered the plea on his behalf in court in Monmouth County on Monday.

Prosecutors allege he continued to work and receive income through his wife while collecting disability insurance following a 2012 motor vehicle accident.

Caneiro already faces four counts of murder, along with arson and weapons charges, in the Nov. 20, 2018, deaths of his brother Keith; Keith’s wife, Jennifer; their 11-year-old son, Jesse; and their 8-year-old daughter, Sophia.
