BOSTON – A review has found deficiencies in the way prosecutors handled assault allegations against Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy's son just before he allegedly killed his girlfriend.
Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan called for the review after Jared Remy was charged in the August stabbing death of Jennifer Martel.
Remy was arrested Aug. 13 after he allegedly pushed Martell into a mirror. He was released on his own recognizance Aug. 14. Authorities say he stabbed Martel to death the next day. He has pleaded not guilty.
The review found that prosecutors did not adequately consider Remy's history of domestic violence and the details of his Aug. 13 assault on Martel. It says they placed too much weight on Martel's decision not to seek an extension of a restraining order against him.
