WOBURN, Mass. (AP) - The son of a Boston Red Sox broadcaster has pleaded guilty to murder in the stabbing of his girlfriend last year.
The judge accepted Jared Remy's guilty plea Tuesday to first-degree murder, assault and battery, and violating a restraining order. The 35-year-old faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole.
Prosecutors said in court that Remy repeatedly stabbed Jennifer Martel in August, first in the couple's Waltham apartment as their 4-year-old daughter screamed, and then as she crawled to an outside patio.
Three neighbors tried unsuccessfully to pull Remy off Martel.
Assistant District Attorney Lisa McGovern says Remy stabbed Martel in the throat, legs, arms and torso, and pinched her face.
Remy is the son of Jerry Remy, a popular Red Sox announcer.
