ABCNews.com(NEW YORK) — A New Jersey man accused of murdering his brother, sister-in-law, niece and nephew then setting their mansion ablaze before torching his own home nearby has pleaded not guilty to the charges.Paul Caneiro, 51, entered the plea during his appearance Friday morning in Monmouth County Superior Court in Freehold, New Jersey. Dressed in a dark green prison jumpsuit, he remained stone-faced and kept his head down as the charges were read aloud to him: four counts of first-degree murder, aggravated arson and weapons offenses in connection with the Nov. 20 rampage.He was ordered to remain behind bars until trial on all charges.Monmouth County prosecutors said a financial dispute between Paul Caneiro and his brother, Keith Caneiro, over their joint business ventures allegedly motivated him to carry out the heinous crimes and then devise an elaborate “ruse” to cover them up.Paul Caneiro allegedly shot his 50-year-old brother multiple times outside his mansion in Colts Neck before entering the sprawling home and killing his brother’s entire family in the early morning hours of Nov. 20. Keith Caneiro’s 45-year-old wife, Jennifer, was shot and stabbed while their two children, 11-year-old Jesse and 8-year-old Sophia, were repeatedly stabbed with a knife, according to prosecutors.Paul Caneiro allegedly set a fire in the basement of the home and removed evidence from the property. Then he drove to his house in Ocean Township, some 15 miles away, where he allegedly used gasoline to set the residence ablaze while his wife and two daughters were asleep inside, according to prosecutors.Paul Caneiro’s wife and daughters escaped the fire unharmed, prosecutors said.Monmouth County prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni said Paul Caneiro set the fires as part of an attempt to destroy evidence of the earlier crimes committed and to create an “illusion” that the Caneiro family at large was somehow being “victimized or targeted.”“We allege that it was a ruse,” Gramiccioni told reporters at a press conference Thursday.Gramiccioni declined to disclose specifics on the motive but said it was “financial in nature, stemming from his and [his brother’s] joint business ventures they owned and operated out of Asbury Park.”“As a result, we have also launched a financial investigation into the business and financial dealings of the defendant,” he said.If convicted on all charges, Paul Caneiro faces 30 years to life in prison.Paul Caneiro’s lawyer, Robert Honecker, has said that his client will “assert his innocence.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Read Full Story Five years ago, Shane Kiernan was an investment banker for a private equity real estate fund, helping evaluate potential acquisitions. In 2008, he established, and subsequently sold, a Dublin-based business called DealHunter that enabled consumers in Southern Ireland to buy products from Northern Ireland more cheaply. Today he’s studying at Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) on a Fulbright Scholarship, on track to earn a master of science in health policy and management in 2014. His goal? To bring his business expertise to bear on health care improvements that have a transformational impact.Why the switch? One reason is that Kiernan came from a family of health professionals—his father is a primary care doctor in Navan, County Meath, in Northeast Ireland. His mother is a nurse, his older brother is a doctor, and his sister is a neuropsychologist—so, even though Kiernan didn’t want to be a doctor himself, caring about people’s health was ingrained.Another reason was rather serendipitous: in the spring of 2010, Kiernan happened to attend a lecture at his alma mater, University College Dublin, where he learned about the work of the Clinton Foundation, which fosters public-private partnerships to improve health, the environment, and economies around the world. It helped him realize that he could use his financial expertise not just in the world of business, but also in the developing world to make a difference in the lives of others. “For me, it kind of clicked,” he said.

zoomImage Courtesy: Damen Dutch shipbuilder Damen Shipyards Group has completed the acquisition of the stake in Mangalia shipyard in Romania from Korean shipbuilding giant Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME).The transaction was faced with several hurdles since its signing in November 2017.DSME owned 51% of the shares in the yard, formerly known as Daewoo Mangalia Heavy Industries (DMHI), and the Romanian government the remaining 49%.However, the government was blocking the agreement between Damen and Daewoo for several months as it wanted to exercise its pre-emptive right through its shareholding in Santierul Naval 2 Mai SA Mangalia.On March 21, 2018, negotiations between Damen and the Romanian government on DMHI were completed. The state decided to waive its pre-emptive right to acquire the stake owned by DSME under one condition. Specifically, Damen will have to assign 2% of the 51% share bought from Daewoo.With this agreement, the Romanian government is becoming the majority shareholder in DMHI with 51% stake in the yard and Damen will hold the remaining 49% stake, Romanian Ministry of Economy said.The yard, which will be renamed Damen Shipyards Mangalia, will be operated as a joint venture with the Romanian Government, with Damen assuming operational control.The yard is located on the Black Sea coast, has three drydocks with a total length of 982 metres and 1.6 kilometres of berthing space. The docks, with a width of 48 and 60 metres, will provide Damen with capacity to cater for larger maritime vessels and structures.Damen described the acquisition as a strategic move as the yard will complement Damen’s current shipyard portfolio, with the possibility for the construction and conversion of larger, high-end, and complex ferries, offshore construction vessels, etc. The yard’s total area of approximately 1 million m2 makes it the largest yard in the Damen Shipyards Group.To signify its first day of operations at Damen Shipyards Mangalia in Romania, Damen held a ceremony at the yard on Monday, July 23.The celebration introduced the Damen Shipyards Mangalia management team under the leadership of managing director Chris Groninger to the yard’s employees.“We will face a challenging period, considering the yard’s current condition. However, with the full support of the Romanian Government, 2MMS, the shipyard’s experienced workforce, and the local community, Damen aims to restore the financial health of the yard, stabilize employment and pursue fitting commercial opportunities internationally that will contribute to rebuilding activity levels. In the meantime, Damen will facilitate a smooth transition and keep talented and skilled resources meaningfully employed,” Damen Shipyards Group executive board member Eggink, CFO, said.
