LONG BRANCH - Funeral services were heldĀ for a family that died in a murder-suicide at their Jersey Shore home last week.

Authorities have said 35-year-old Lyndon Beharry shot his partner and their two children on Sept. 2 before setting their Long Branch house on fire and killing himself. A motive for the shootings has not been disclosed.

The services for all four were held Tuesday at the Damiano Funeral Home in Long Branch.

Monmouth County Acting Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni has said 29-year-old Amanda Morris, 7-year-old Brandon Beharry and 4-year-old Brian Beharry were found with gunshot wounds inside a second-floor bedroom after the fire was extinguished.

He said Lyndon Beharry's gunshot wound was self-inflicted.

A cousin said he saw Lyndon Beharry earlier that day and everything seemed fine with the family.
