Red Sox Announcer Jerry Remy's Son Jared Pleads Not Guilty to Murder Charge
Jared Remy, the son of Boston Red Sox broadcaster and former second baseman Jerry Remy, pled not guilty Friday in the Thursday night murder of his girlfriend.
The Associated Press, via ESPN, had the report.
Remy, 34, was arraigned on Friday in Waltham District Court on charges of murder and domestic assault and battery in connection to the death of 27-year-old Jennifer Martel.
The news comes just two days after Remy was released in connection to an open assault and battery charge in which Martel was also the victim.
Police responded to multiple 911 calls on Thursday around 10 p.m. ET at a Waltham apartment complex. At the scene, they found Martel on an outside patio with multiple stab wounds.
Details of the murder described by the prosecution were quite gruesome. Remy reportedly attacked Martel in various rooms of the apartment and rebuffed neighbors' attempts to help her while ultimately stabbing her several times on the patio.
According to the AP report, Remy was arrested at the scene and his clothes were soaked in the victim's blood. He was ordered to be held without bail at the conclusion of the proceeding.
Martel's 4-year-old child was in the apartment at the time of the attack but was unharmed. According to Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan, the child is in custody of state child welfare officials. It is unclear if Remy is her father.
Although there was no active restraining order against Remy stemming from assault charges, he does has a violent criminal history. With a total of 15 criminal charges since 1998, this isn't the first time the former Red Sox security staffer has been in trouble with the law.
Per this tweet from The Boston Globe, Remy was connected to a violent domestic dispute with a different woman in 2005:

The Globe also reported on Friday that Richard Martel Sr., who is the victim's grandfather, was among a number of Martel's family members who had been urging her to get away from Remy's abuse as soon as possible.
"Her mother told her to get away from him," Martel Sr. told The Globe. "He would degrade her, say horrible things. Jared was this way for years."
The elder Remy played for the Red Sox from 1978-1984 and has been calling games for the franchise with the New England Sports Network since 1988. According to this tweet from ESPNBoston, he will be taking a leave of absence from the booth:
