Jerry Remy's Son Pleads Guilty to Murder

Jerry Remy's Son Pleads Guilty to Murder

Jared Remy, son of Boston Red Sox color commentator Jerry Remy, pled guilty to murder on Monday in Middlesex County, Massachusetts. He received a life sentence.

Remy stabbed girlfriend Jennifer Martel to death last August in front of her four-year-old daughter in Waltham. Neighbors tried unsuccessfully to remove the hulking man from his victim. Remy, who had a series of troubled interactions with Martel and other women, was fired by the Boston Red Sox as a security guard in 2008 in connection to a steroid investigation. While incarcerated awaiting trial, he attacked a pedophile with hot coffee and his fists in an effort to gain credibility among other inmates. 

Jerry Remy has become a Boston institution as a broadcaster after an unremarkable career as a second baseman for the team in the 1970s and ’80s. In addition to serving as a color commentator for televised Red Sox games since 1988, he has authored a series of Red Sox-related children’s books and opened several area eateries.
