A dentist in New Jersey is charged with fraud for falsifying the dental records of three children who were among five people killed in a house fire in South Plainfield last month.

Paresh Patel allegedly provided dental records showing work that had not been done on the children that he had filed claims for.

The false records delayed identification of the children.

Funeral services for all five victims will be held Friday.
