Funeral services have been held for a New Jersey family whose bodies were found at their burning mansion two days before Thanksgiving.

Family and friends gathered on Sunday at the Holmdel Funeral Home in Holmdel to mourn Keith Caneiro; his wife, Jennifer, and their two young children, Jesse and Sophia.

All were found dead on November 20 at their Colts Neck mansion. Keith Caneiro's brother, Paul, has been charged with murder and arson.

He pleaded not guilty during a court appearance on Friday.

Monmouth County prosecutors have called the motive for the slayings "financial".

But defence lawyers say they haven't seen any evidence Paul Caneiro was financially strapped.

Paul Caneiro is charged in another blaze that occurred at his Ocean Township home. No one was injured in that fire.
