Jared Remy, the son of beloved Boston Red Sox broadcaster and former Sox second baseman Jerry Remy, was arrested on Thursday night and charged with murder after he allegedly stabbed his girlfriend Jennifer Martel to death in their apartment.
Remy is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday at the same courthouse where he appeared on Wednesday after being accused of assaulting Martel. He had been released on personal recognizance after Middlesex District Attorney Marian T. Ryan said the bail recommendation from Martel’s camp was “based on a totality of circumstances.”
According to the Boston Globe, Waltham police responded to a call from Remy’s apartment complex at about 9 p.m. on Thursday night. They found Martel bleeding from multiple stab wounds on the back patio of the couple’s apartment. Martel’s daughter was reportedly home at the time her mother was killed.
Some of you may know Jared Remy, an avid weightlifter, from a steroid scandal that took place when he worked as a security staff member for the Red Sox several years ago. He and a second staff member were found to have used steroids, which led Major League Baseball to investigate whether he helped supply players with performance-enhancing drugs during the 2008 season. No players were implicated, and Remy later admitted to using steroids but claimed he never gave drugs to any of his coworkers. He was fired in 2009.
The past year has been very tough for Jerry Remy, who is also battling lung cancer. Back in July, Remy’s daughter Jenna Remy was arrested and brought up on several charges after she allegedly broke into her ex-boyfriend’s house and had to be pepper sprayed to get her under control.
Remy will likely miss some time in the Red Sox booth in the wake of the latest tragedy.
