NESN broadcaster Jerry Remy will be out for the rest of the season to be with his family after his son, Jared Remy, was accused of murdering his girlfriend, Jennifer Martel.

“I am full of grief for the Martel family,” Remy said in a statement released by NESN. “My thoughts and prayers continue to go out to them. My wife and I are sick about this senseless tragedy. It’s clear this isn’t the time for me to return to broadcasting Red Sox games. It’s my hope that I can do so in the spring. I thank NESN and the Red Sox for their support through this nightmare.”

Remy hasn’t been in the booth since Aug. 16, the day his son, Jared Remy, was charged with murdering Martel.

NESN also released a statement supporting Remy’s decision.

“We met with Jerry and conveyed our support,” said NESN President and CEO Sean McGrail, “and when Jerry feels the time is right, we will welcome him back. All of us at NESN and the Red Sox once again express our deepest sympathies to the Martel family for their terrible and tragic loss.”

Dennis Eckersley, among others, has been filling in for the Rem-Dawg during his absence.
