LONG BRANCH, N.J. (AP) — Authorities have confirmed that a house fire on the Jersey shore was set on purpose after a man fatally shot his girlfriend, two children and himself. Monmouth County Acting Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni on Friday officially ruled the deaths of Lyndon Beharry, 35, Amanda Morris, 29, Brandon Beharry, 7, and Brian Beharry, 4, a murder-suicide.
He says all four were found with gunshot wounds inside a second floor bedroom after the Tuesday fire was extinguished. Lyndon Beharry's was self-inflicted.
The outside of the home showed little fire damage and all of it was confined to the second floor.
