The son of a famed Red Sox player and broadcaster was arrested and will be arraigned on Friday for allegedly stabbing his girlfriend to death while the victim’s daughter was at home.
The Boston Globe reports that Jared Remy, the son of famed Boston Red Sox player and broadcaster Jerry Remy, is accused of killing Jennifer Martel, his girlfriend. He was taken into custody when, “inside the patio at the unit on Stearns Hill Road, was a large bloodstain lying next to a small pink plastic tricycle … Martel was found lying in the patio. … An evidence marker with the number 1 on it was placed next to the blood stain.”
According to the Boston Globe:
Remy is scheduled to be arraigned today on murder and domestic assault and battery charges at Waltham District Court — the same courthouse where he appeared on Wednesday to face allegations that he assaulted Jennifer Martel, the woman he is now accused of killing, officials said.
Martel’s daughter was home when her mother was killed, Middlesex District Attorney Marian T. Ryan told reporters at a brief press conference outside Waltham police headquarters today. The child is now in the custody of the Department of Children and Families.
Remy also may have had a history of steroid use:
In 2009, the Globe reported that Remy and a second member of the Red Sox security staff were implicated in steroid use, a revelation that led Major League Baseball to open an investigation into the alleged use of performance-enhancing drugs during the team’s 2008 pennant race.
Both Remy and the second man were fired by the Red Sox. Major League Baseball did not find evidence of steroid use among Red Sox players at that time, the Globe reported.
