The parents of Jennifer Martel spoke with The Boston Globe’s Eric Moskowitz in an emotional interview that offers a glimpse into the relationship between Martel and Jared Remy, who is now charged with her murder.
Jennifer’s mother Patty Martel tells Moskowitz that many instances she witnessed led her to beg her daughter to get out of the relationship. About a week before her death, Jennifer told her mother she’d had enough.
They spoke by phone on Monday, Aug. 12. "She said, 'Mom, don't worry; I'm planning my escape,'" Patty said.
