BOSTON (AP) -- A review has found deficiencies in the way prosecutors handled assault allegations against Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy's son in the days before he allegedly killed his girlfriend.
Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan called for the review after Jared Remy was charged in the August stabbing death of Jennifer Martel.
Remy was arrested Aug. 13 after he allegedly pushed Martell into a mirror. He was released on his own recognizance Aug. 14 and authorities say he stabbed Martel to death the next day. He has pleaded not guilty.
The review found that the prosecution team did not adequately consider Remy's history of domestic violence and the details of his Aug. 13 assault on Martel and placed too much weight on her decision not to seek an extension of a restraining order against him.
