Son of ex-Red Sox player pleads guilty to murdering girlfriend

BOSTON (Reuters) – The son of a former Boston Red Sox player and broadcaster was sentenced to life in prison without parole after pleading guilty on Tuesday to murdering his girlfriend in their apartment outside Boston last August.

Jared Remy, 35, changed his plea to guilty from not guilty at a hearing in Middlesex Superior Court on charges that he stabbed Jennifer Martel, 27, to death after a fight at the Waltham, Massachusetts, apartment where they lived with their 5-year-old daughter.
