Jared Remy, the son of Boston Red Sox broadcaster and former player Jerry Remy, was arrested Thursday night on murder and other charges.

Remy was accused of stabbing his girlfriend to death in their apartment Waltham, Mass., apartment while the victim’s daughter was home.

Remy was scheduled to be arraigned Friday for murder, domestic assault and battery charges at Waltham District Court. He also appeared at the court Wednesday after being accused of assaulting the same woman, Jennifer Martel.

Middlesex District Attorney Marian T. Ryan said at a press conference Friday that Martel’s daughter was home when Martel was murdered. The girl is in the custody of the Department of Children and Families.

Waltham police were called to the Windsor Village apartment complex around 9 p.m. Thursday night, a day after Remy was released from jail on his own recognizance.

Officers on the scene found Martel bleeding from several stab wounds on the patio in the back of the apartment.

Remy was arrested and later taken to a hospital to be examined for an unspecified medical issue.

The Boston Globe reported in 2009 that Remy and another member of the Red Sox security staff were involved with steroids, which led Major League Baseball to investigate the possible use of performance-enhancing drugs during the team’s 2008 pennant chase.

Remy and the other man were fired by the team. The league found no evidence of PED use among players at the time.

Remy is an admitted steroids user who also admitted to beating a former girlfriend in 2005.

Jerry Remy played for the Red Sox from 1978 to 1984. He is currently a Red Sox broadcaster on NESN-TV. An associate of Remy’s said in a statement posted on Remy’s official Twitter feed: “It’s difficult to comment after the news this AM. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Martel family.”
