BOSTON (CBS) – A former Essex District Attorney and a Norfolk County prosecutor will conduct an independent review of how the Middlesex District Attorney’s office handled the Jared Remy case.

Remy is being held without bail for the brutal murder of his girlfriend Jennifer Martel August 15 in Waltham.

He was charged with assault and battery just two days earlier after police said he pushed Martel into a mirror in a bathroom in their home.

He was arrested, arraigned the next day and released on personal recognizance, despite a long history of domestic violence.

Remy was put on an emergency restraining order which expired and was not renewed on August 14, the day he was released in the assault case.

Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan has come under intense criticism for the decision to release Remy.

Ryan said her office acted on the information they had at the time.

Her office announced Wednesday afternoon that former Essex District Attorney Kevin Burke and Norfolk County First Assistant District Attorney Jeanmarie Carroll will “conduct an independent review of the factors” that led to the bail recommendation for Remy.
