Red Sox broadcaster's son pleads guilty to murder

WOBURN, Mass. (AP) The son of a Boston Red Sox broadcaster has pleaded guilty to murder in the stabbing of his girlfriend last year.

Jared Remy entered the plea Tuesday in Middlesex Superior Court. Prosecutors say he fatally stabbed Jennifer Martel at the couple's Waltham apartment in August.

The judge didn't immediately accept Remy's guilty plea to first-degree murder and assault and battery charges.

Jared Remy was arrested Aug. 13 after he allegedly pushed Martel into a mirror. He was released on his own recognizance on Aug. 14 and allegedly stabbed Martel to death the next day.

The 35-year-old Remy and the 27-year-old Martel had a 5-year-old daughter. Remy is the son of Jerry Remy, a popular announcer for the Red Sox.
