Jared Remy, the troubled son of Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy, pleaded not guilty this afternoon to charges that he stabbed his girlfriend to death last night.

Jared, 34, was arrested in Waltham Thursday after police responded to several 911 calls about a disturbance inside the apartment he shared with Jennifer Martel.

When authorities arrived, they found Martel dead on the patio, a victim of multiple stab wounds.

Prosecutors say Jared assaulted Jennifer throughout the residence, slashing away with a knife neighbors who tried to intervene at various points.

He was arrested at the scene and sources confirm his clothes were stained in Martel's blood at the time.

Remy - who has been accused of assault against five people over the years, and who has had three restraining orders against him - had just been released Wednesday on personal recognizance after being arrested for battery against Martel.

He is being held without bail for this latest alleged crime.

Jerry Remy played second base for Boston and has served as the team's color analyst on the New England Sports Network since 1988. He has battles health problems in recent years and is yet to comment on the latest incident involving his son.

"All of us at NESN and the Red Sox, along with Jerry Remy, are filled with grief for everyone involved, and we extend our deepest sympathies to the family of Jennifer Martel," the network said today in a statement.
