Jared Remy, the son of famed Boston Red Sox player and broadcaster Jerry Remy, allegedly stabbed his girlfriend to death in their Waltham, Mass., apartment Thursday night. It's being described as an act of domestic violence that took place while the victim’s daughter was home, officials said Friday. Jared Remy is expected to be arraigned today on murder and domestic assault and battery charges, at the same Waltham District Courthouse where he appeared just Wednesday to face charges that he assaulted Jennifer Martel, the woman he is now accused of killing, according to The Boston Globe, Aug. 16.
Middlesex District Attorney Marian T. Ryan told reporters this morning that the younger Remy was released on personal recognizance on Wednesday for the assault case.
Ryan said that the bail recommendation made by her office was based in part, on a conversation with the 27 year-old victim Jennifer Martel. The lack of monetary bail was also based, "on a totality of circumstances", Ryan said.
Court records show there was no active restraining order against Jared Remy, 34, following the assault and battery case from Wednesday.
Police logs show Waltham cops were called to the Windsor Village apartment complex on Stearns Hill Rd. around 9 p.m. Thursday night.
Arriving officers found Martel bleeding from multiple stab wounds in a small fenced-in patio located at the back of the apartment, according to ESPN Boston.
Remy apparently also suffered an unspecified injury that was described as not being self-inflicted, authorities said. He was taken to an area hospital and released to await arraignment, officials said.
It's unknown if Remy was suffering from some sort of "roid rage", but some reports indicate he was obsessed with body building, and openly abused steroids in the past.
Martel's child in the apartment was unhurt and is now in the custody of state child welfare officials. Ryan noted it's unclear if Remy was the father of the little girl.
Jerry Remy is a former Red Sox second baseman who has been a color analyst for the New England Sports Network since 1988. He has struggled with health problems himself in recent years, including cancer and depression.
Jared Remy was previously employed by the Red Sox as well, as a security staffer. He was fired by the team in 2008 for admitting to steroid use during an investigation.
At that time, no evidence was found that he had supplied any players on the team with steroids.
Calls to NESN and the Red Sox were not immediately returned.
