FEEHOLD — Authorities have filed charges against the brother of the man whose body was found along with his wife and children after their New Jersey mansion was set on fire. NJ.com reports court records show Paul Caniero was charged Thursday with four counts of murder in the slayings of his brother, Keith, along with Keith’s wife and their two children. Paul Caniero has been in custody since authorities accused him of setting fire to his own home. His lawyer has maintained his innocence.
POLICE-USE OF FORCE DATABASE
— A 16-month investigation has found New Jersey’s system for reporting police use-of-force incidents is broken and ineffective and hides some alarming trends. The probe by NJ Advance Media for NJ.com pulled data from 468 police departments and the state police from 2012 to 2016. It found use-of-force reporting by local police departments was inconsistent, incomplete and, in many cases, missing altogether.
— LOST DOG FOUND — A dog who escaped from his now-former New Jersey home in February was found over the weekend in a city roughly 19 miles away.
