FREEHOLD TOWNSHIP - The Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office says the man found dead in a Freehold Township house fire was murdered.

Authorities still won't identify him, but the homeowner's brother says the man killed was 42-year-old Michael Conway, a lifelong resident of Freehold.

The Prosecutor's Office also says the fire that broke out inside the Jackson Mills Road home Sunday morning was deliberately set.

Investigators are now searching for a white 2009 Volkswagon Jetta that was missing from the home's garage. It has a New Jersey license plate that reads: YEJ 12K.
