Jared Remy, in Middlesex County Jail awaiting trial for the August 15, 2013 murder of his girlfriend, Jennifer Martel, will face new charges connected to an altercation with a fellow inmate. The should-be recidivist, and son of longtime Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy, is now charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
According to a statement from the Middlesex Sheriff's Office, announcing the filing of a criminal complaint, Remy allegedly assaulted a fellow pre-trial detainee on Thursday and was subsequently moved to an isolated area of the jail. No further details concerning the incident, including the type of weapon or how it even occurred, were provided. Remy will be arraigned on the new charge in Cambridge District Court on April 24.
