---- — WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) — The son of longtime Boston Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy has been charged with fatally stabbing his girlfriend.

Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan says Jared Remy is scheduled to be arraigned Friday on murder and other charges in connection with the death Thursday of 27-year-old Jennifer Martel at a Waltham apartment complex.

Ryan said at a news conference that Remy and Martel were involved in a "romantic relationship."

Ryan says police responded to the Windsor Village complex at about 10 p.m. Thursday where they found Martel in an outdoor patio area suffering from multiple stab wounds.

A child in the apartment was unhurt and is now in the custody of state child welfare officials. Ryan says the child is Martel's but she was not sure if Remy was the father.
