Remy released day before he allegedly killed girlfriend

Remy arraigned on murder charges in girlfriend's death   

BOSTON —Deficiencies in how the district attorney’s office handled assault charges against Jared Remy allowed him to walk free a day before he allegedly killed his girlfriend, an independent review board concluded.

Remy, 35, is accused of fatally stabbing Jennifer Martel at their Waltham apartment on Aug. 15. Authorities said he was covered in blood when they arrested him at the scene.

Timeline: Jared Remy case

The attack came a day after Remy was released on his own recognizance after being charged with assaulting Martel on Aug. 13.

The panel found that the domestic violence case could have been pursued more aggressively.

“We found that Remy’s domestic violence criminal history, the facts in the Aug. 13, 2013, police report, and the fact that there was a young child in the home were not given sufficient weight, while the victim’s decision not to come to court to extend the emergency restraining order or to request conditions of release was given excessive consideration in the evaluation,” the report states.

Remy, son of Red Sox announcer Jerry Remy, pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and assault and battery with a deadly weapon in the death of Martel. He was held without bail.

Middlesex County District Attorney Marian Ryan thanked the panel for its work and said her office has” already implemented changes to address the deficiencies identified in the report.”

Ryan said her office has also been involved in ongoing efforts to strengthen laws to protect victims of domestic violence and to increase sentencing options.


Jared Remy has been indicted in the death of his girlfriend Jennifer Martel, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan said Tuesday.

Last night I wrote about the tragic murder of Jennifer Martel. It’s devastating to now hear that she was pressured by her boyfriends family to allow her restraining order to expire, which happened on Wednesday, August 14, 2013. Unfortunately, this opened the door for her abusive boyfriend, Jared Remy, to feel he had a license to kill. His abusive past started before they were a couple. He’s attacked another female with a broken bottle, he’s kicked a woman in the stomach among other things. It pains me to further know that only nights before, the police had been called to the house for a domestic dispute. Martel’s family describes the abusive relationship stating that for some time Remy had been verbally and physically abusing Jennifer Martel. She stayed only because she feared losing her daughter because Remy’s family had more money.

As a former victim of domestic violence I know that it is easier said than done when people tell you to just walk away. My one suggestion to those that are still in an abusive situation, make sure that you tell as many people as you can about what you are going through. If you plan to leave, make sure you do it when your abuser is far enough away to allow your safe departure. Try to leave with only what you really need. Don’t let your fight for freedom be lost because you were trying to bring something that had sentimental value. Never let a restraining order lapse no matter what you think about the abusers family. The more power you give them, the more power they will take.

I’ve come to learn that you cannot take chance with your life and certainly not with the life of your children. The first time your partner hits you, leave. Don’t give them the power of a second chance. If you do, in their mind, you given them license to abuse you without questions. Choose life over death.

My heart goes out to both families and to all victims of domestic violence. Keep them all in your hearts and prayers.

Every time we think that crime has taken a break from the sports world another story pops up. Last evening Jared fatal stabbed 27-year-old Jennifer Martel to death. Fortunately, Martel’s child who was also in the home of Jared Remy at the time of the murder, was unharmed and is safe in the custody of the state welfare department. District attorney Marian Ryan stated that Jared Remy was arrested and charged with Martel’s murder. Jared had been arrested on Tuesday for assault and battery, but was released on personal recognizances. Jared Remy is the son of Jerry Remy who is a broadcaster for the Boston Red Sox. Jared had been fired from his job as a Security Officer at Fenway Park in 2009 due to his involvement in a steroid scandal where he had sold drugs to a staffer by the name of Nicholas Cyr. Jared Remy had another arrest in 2005 for assault and battery of a former girlfriend.

It amazes me that abusive people always seem to stay free so they can kill those they set to to kill. Who is protecting the innocent? Why do criminals continue to have more rights than their victims? Maybe this one slipped through the cracks because his father was a sports broadcaster. I’m suddenly grateful that although my 20 year old has the height and build to play sports that he has no want to do so. We all know that there are criminals all over, but for whatever reason sports seems to have such a large criminal base. Steroids had stretched things out even more pulling in security. Will we next hear that team physicians have been in on steroids the entire time? Only tie will tell.
