WOBURN (CBS/AP) — The son of Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy pleaded not guilty Tuesday at his arraignment in Superior Court in the murder of his girlfriend.
Jared Remy had already pleaded not guilty in District Court in the stabbing death of Jennifer Martel.
He appeared in Middlesex Superior Court briefly Tuesday with a goatee, wearing a sport jacket and dress shirt.

Remy’s attorney, Ed Ryan was asked about his client’s emotional state.
“He’s quite frankly an emotional mess. His mental state is difficult. This is a very difficult and tragic case,” Ryan told reporters.
In a jailhouse interview Sunday with the Boston Herald, Remy denied killing Martel and said he still loves her.
Prosecutors say Remy stabbed Martel at their Waltham apartment on Aug. 15.
Authorities said he was covered in blood when they arrested him at the scene.
The attack came a day after Remy was released from custody after being accused of assaulting Martel.
After his son’s arrest, Jerry Remy announced he wouldn’t return to the broadcast booth this season.
