Carneiro has been in custody since Nov. 21, on suspicion of setting fire to his own home the day before, now new charges have been added to the list including four counts of murder as well as arson and two weapons violations.

it was revealed Carneiro used a handgun and knife to perform his crimes.

The law firm representing Caneiro said they would not comment until after the prosecutor's news conference.

funeral services for the family are planned Sunday.
