NESN analyst Jerry Remy did not work Friday night’s game against the Yankees following the arrest of his son for murder.

Jared W. Remy was arraigned earlier in the day at Waltham District Court and charged with murder and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon in the death of his girlfriend, Jennifer Martel, on Thursday. He pleaded not guilty and is being held without bail.

(Boston.com's Metro Desk has more on the crime.)

Jerry Remy did not attend the arraignment. He was with the Red Sox in Toronto on Thursday and returned on the team’s charter flight.

NESN announced that Remy also would not call the six games on the team’s West Coast road trip next week. Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley is filling in for Remy.

It is unclear when Remy will return, although NESN associates said they do expect him to return to the broadcast booth this season.

“This morning, we learned of a terrible tragedy. 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 in a statement.

Red Sox manager John Farrell was asked about the situation before the game.

“It’s an ongoing investigation. Our thoughts, our prayers and our sympathy is certainly with the Martel family,” he said.
