CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) – The son of a Boston Red Sox broadcaster charged with fatally stabbing his girlfriend is facing additional charges stemming from allegations that he assaulted a fellow inmate who is also in jail awaiting trial.
The Middlesex District Attorney's office said on Saturday that it has charged Jared Remy with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon for Thursday's attack. Authorities say the son of Boston Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy is now being held in solitary confinement. He is expected to be arraigned on the new case on April 24 in Cambridge District Court.
The 35-year-old Remy has pleaded not guilty to fatally stabbing Jennifer Martel at their apartment Aug. 15, when their daughter was at home.
Remy was released from custody after allegedly pushing 27-year-old Martel into a mirror two days before the killing.
