Waltham, MA — Jared Remy, the son of beloved Boston Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy, has been charged with the murder of his girlfriend.
Jared Remy is accused of stabbing Jennifer Martel, 27, to death last night. Remy was arrested on Tuesday night in connection with domestic violence against Martel and then released on personal recognizance. According to the prosecutor, “The bail recommendation was made based on a totality of the circumstances, the singular count in that case as well as conversations with investigating officers and Ms. Martell.”
Remy is due in court today for an arraignment on murder and other charges in Watham District Court.
The Boston Globe reports that “Waltham police were called to the Windsor Village apartment complex around 9 p.m. last night. Arriving officers found Martel bleeding from multiple stab wounds in a small fenced in patio in the back of the apartment. Remy was arrested at the scene…. He was later taken to a hospital for examination for unspecified medical issue, but is now expected to appear in court later today.”
Martel’s young daughter reportedly was in the apartment at the time of this incident and is now under the supervision of the state’s Department and Family Services agency.
The younger Remy was a Boston Red Sox employee at one time according to Deadspin: “Back in 2009, Remy was fired from his job with Red Sox security after being implicated as a steroids dealer. Remy admitted to using steroids, and an MLB investigation found no evidence he had sold them to players.”
Jerry Remy — affectionately known to the fans as the “RemDawg” — played second base for the Boston Red Sox from 1978 through 1984 and has been the color commentator on Red Sox game broadcasts on the NESN TV Network since 1988. In recent years, Remy has battled some health issues which caused his absence from the telecasts for periods of time.
Earlier this summer, the Boston sports world was rocked by the arrest of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez for murder.
