Jerry Remy to Return Wednesday after Jared Remy Pleads Guilty

Jared Remy

The son of NESN broadcaster Jerry Remy, a monster named Jared, has pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the death of his longtime girlfriend Jennifer Martel.

In court Tuesday, Remy did some Grade A victim blaming:

“I am here today not for a deal, but to take responsibility for what I have done. I would like you to know that I always told Jen she could leave, but don’t threaten me with my daughter. That night, Jen had a knife in her hand and threatened me with my daughter. So I killed her,” Jared Remy said. “I don’t think it’s right when women use their kids against their fathers.”

Furthermore, Remy asked that people blame him and not villify his family, namely his parents, Jerry and Phoebe.

“I am the bad apple,” Jared Remy said, “and if you ask my family, they’d rather have me dead than her. Jen helped me clean up my act, but the one thing I never stopped doing was my love for drugs, and for that I am sorry. Jen was an angel and always will be an angel.”

Meanwhile, Jerry Remy had two planned off days Monday and Tuesday, and was set to return to the NESN booth on Wednesday when the Red Sox face the Braves.

Jerry and his wife released a statement Tuesday:

“We continue to be heartbroken over Jenn’s death. That will never change,” Jerry and Phoebe said through their son’s attorney, Edward P. Ryan Jr. “No words can express the sorrow we feel for the Martel family. We are now focusing our attention on our grandchildren and doing what is best for them.”
