Jason Bohn, the 33-year-old Astoria man allegedly responsible for the murder of his live-in girlfriend Danielle Thomas, was indicted on charges of first-degree murder.

Thomas, a 27-year-old Weight Watchers executive, was found dead inside the couple’s 33rd Street apartment last month, beaten, strangled and left in a bathtub filled with ice. Her death followed several documented incidents of harassment by Bohn. Thomas had also obtained a restraining order against him in June.
