The son of Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy pleaded guilty to the first degree murder of his long-time girlfriend Jennifer Martel. Remy stabbed Martel in their apartment last year, and had pleaded not guilty in the past.
He was arrested for the first time back in August after allegedly pushing Martel into a mirror. He was released on his own recognizance and stabbed Martel to death the following day. First degree murder charges carry a life sentence in prison without the possibility of parole.
Remy had pleaded guilty to other charges surrounding Martel's death- including assault on a neighbor who tried to intervene, and violating a restraining order Martel had taken out against him.

Two other charges- assault and battery and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon- were dismissed after Remy’s attorney argued they were covered under the murder charge.
In a statement after his sentencing, Jared Remy said“blame me for this, not my family.”
