John Henry on Jerry Remy: 'All of us in Red Sox Nation stand behind him'

Red Sox owner John Henry voiced his support for NESN analyst Jerry Remy, two days after a Boston Globe report painted a picture of Remy as an enabling father of an oft-troubled son who now stands charged with murder. "I've told him, all of us in Red Sox Nation stand behind him," Henry told WCVB-TV on Tuesday. "It's a terrible thing he's been going through, but we're really glad to have him back." Remy has been broadcasting Red Sox games for NESN at spring training, but he returned to Boston this week in order to participate in negotiations regarding custody of his 5-year-old granddaughter. Jared Remy stands accused of killing the girl's mother, Jennifer Martel, at the Waltham apartment they shared. He has pleaded not guilty and will go on trial in the fall. The Martel and Remy families came to an agreement Tuesday that gives the Martels custody but allows the Remys visitation rights.
