(CBS/AP) WOBURN, Mass. - Jared Remy, the son of Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy, pleaded not guilty in the stabbing death of his girlfriend at his arraignment in Middlesex Superior Court in Woburn, Mass. Tuesday, reports CBS Boston.

Remy, who was wearing a sport jacket and dress shirt, was ordered held without bail, according to the Boston Globe.

The 34-year-old Remy had already pleaded not guilty in District Court in death of Jennifer Martel. His indictment by a grand jury is what moved the case to Superior Court.

Prosecutors say Remy stabbed Martel, 27, during a dispute at their Waltham, Mass. apartment on Aug. 15. The couple's 4-year-old daughter was in the apartment at the time of the alleged attack but was unharmed.

Authorities say Remy was covered in blood when they arrested him at the scene, reports CBS Boston.

The couple's daughter remains in state custody. Both sets of grandparents have reportedly petitioned for custody of the girl.

Martel's death came just two days after Remy was released from police custodyafter being accused of assault and battery on Martel. There was no active restraining order between the two at the time of Martel's death.

In a jailhouse interview Sunday with the Boston Herald, Remy denied killing Martel and said he still loves her.
