Remy offers condolences to family of slain woman

BOSTON -- Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy put out a statement on Twitter a day after reports came out that his son Jared was arrested for allegedly murdering girlfriend Jennifer Martel.

"My thoughts and prayers go out to Jenn Martel and her family. Words cannot describe my wife's and my grief.

"Son or not, I am at a loss for words articulating my disgust and remorse over this senseless and tragic act. We are heartbroken,

"Jerry Remy."

Jerry Remy, who played for his hometown Red Sox from 1978-84 and has been broadcasting their games on NESN since 1988, will not be on the team's upcoming six-game West Coast road trip. There is no word yet on a potential return date for Remy. Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley has been filling in.
