Longtime Boston Red Sox announcer Jerry Remy says he cannot express the depth of his "disgust and remorse" over the death of Jennifer Martel, allegedly at the hands of his son.

Remy tweeted a statement Saturday in which he said he and wife Phoebe "are heartbroken" and "cannot describe" their grief over Martel's death.

Remy's son Jared is accused of stabbing Martel to death last week, just two days after he was arrested on assault and battery charges involving Martel.

The couple has a four-year-old child who was in the home at the time of the stabbing.
