Jared Remy Killed Girlfriend After Release on Assault Charge, DA Says

August 16, 2013

Jared Remy, son of famed Red Sox announcer Jerry Remy, assaulted his girlfriend Wednesday and was released on no bail at a prosecutor's request -- one day before killing the same woman, authorities said this morning.

Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan said Jared Remy, 34, will be arraigned this morning for murder, and assault and battery on a household member.

Waltham police were called to his home at Sterns Hill Road in Waltham about 9:30 p.m. last night. When they arrived they found Jennifer Martel, the 27-year-old mother of a 4-year-old, stabbed multiple times.

"There appeared to be a struggle occurring inside and outside," Ryan said.

She said police had arrested Remy for beating Martel on Tuesday night. He was arraigned Wednesday, and prosecutors assigned to her office asked that he be released on personal recognizance.

"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. Martel," Ryan said.

Remy had 15 criminal cases out of Waltham District Court between 1998-2011, according to records. He also had a 2005 restraining order against him, which was currently inactive.

This morning at the Windsor Village townhouse, the back porch had a bloodstain. Footprints led down the 30-foot, winding walkway to the street.

Martel's little girl, who was in the apartment last night, is now in the custody of the state Department of Children & Family Services, Ryan said.
