Each murder charge carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.
Paul Caneiro, 51, was charged with four counts of murder, one count of aggravated arson, one count of possession of a firearm and one count of possession of a knife, Gramiccioni said.
The prosecutor said the fire at Paul Caneiro's house was set to destroy evidence he had brought there from the crime scene, but also had another goal.
Obituaries published ahead of the services describe 11-year-old Jesse as being interested World War I and II history, video games and sports, and 8-year-old Sophia as loving ice skating, ninja classes and making cookies with her nanny, according to the AP.
The Nov. 20 fire at Paul Caneiro's home took place hours before flames were discovered at the Colts Neck mansion where Keith Caneiro and his family lived.
The 51-year-old New Jersey resident allegedly used gasoline to set fire to his Ocean Township home before dawn on November 20 while his wife and two daughters were inside, according to an arrest warrant. "One was to destroy evidence that he retained and brought back from the Colts Neck crime scene, and the other was to create some type of a ruse or appearance that his larger overall family was somehow targeted".
An investigation into those businesses - and the financial dealings of the Caneiros - has been launched, the prosecutor said. As a locally owned news organization, TAPinto through its advertisers is able to publish online, objective news 24/7 at no charge.

Gramiccioni said the killing rampage unfolded in the early hours of November 20, when Paul Caneiro, 51, allegedly shot his brother Keith Caneiro, 50, multiple times outside Keith's Colts Neck Home on Willow Brook Road.
Mitchell J. Ansell, one of Caneiro's attorneys, maintained his client was innocent of all charges. Their bodies were found severely burned, and a medical examiner is still investigating the cause of death, Gramiccioni said.
Caneiro's wife and two daughters were home when he is accused of using gasoline to ignite their Ocean Township home, which is about 10 miles from his brother's home in Colts Neck. He said the fire was started in two exterior locations at each end of the house.
"He fully expects to be vindicated", Robert Honecker previously told The Post.
They both owned Square One, a technology company, and EcoStar Pest Management, both in Asbury Park. The area is still fenced off. Friends and loved ones of the Caneiro family have placed signs, photographs and flowers at the site as a memorial to the family.
"One body, a man, was found outside the home, and the other three were recovered inside the home", Monmouth County prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni told Patch.com. "Have no reason to believe that's the case, think it was targeted".
