Police believe the man suspected of killing his girlfriend in their Astoria, Queens apartment on Tuesday will turn himself in today. According to the Post, Jason Bohn’s lawyer "called detectives to make the surrender arrangements." And yesterday, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly revealed that Bohn, who had beaten Danielle Thomas on previous occasions, apparently called police on Tuesday night, telling them to check on her.

Kelly said, "He calls the police, at the 114th precinct and states that 'we had a dispute, I threw her against the wall and somebody should go check to see if she's alright.' When police respond, her body is found in the bathtub surrounded by ice. She had trauma to the head." Apparently the NYPD visited a Rite Aid near the couple's 33rd Street apartment, telling a manager that Bohn bought ice there. When police discovered her body, they found she had been beaten and strangled.

Thomas, 27, and Bohn, 33, met last fall in Florida, where they both attended the University of Florida (Bohn went to law school there; he also has a bachelor's and master's from Columbia). Thomas had left her finance job at Disney to move to New York, working at Weight Watchers as a financial analyst, to be with Bohn. A friend told the Post that before the move, the couple had a long-distance relationship, "When she visited him, he at one point threw her out in the cold. When a friend took her in, he managed to get her to come back and tell him what the friend had said — and then [he] threatened the friend."

After moving here in March, Bohn's abuse continued and earlier this month, Thomas went to the 114th Precinct to ask for a restraining order, after being beaten in the face and body by Bohn in May (according to the Post, he "beat her so severely that the bruises on Thomas’ face and back were still showing two weeks later, when she reported the assault to cops"). While she was at the precinct, Bohn allegedly yelled at her on the cellphone, "It’s war! I’ll dedicate my life to hunting you down like a dog in the streets. I am going to make your life impossible."

The friend added, "I think everyone who heard anything about the situation now believes he’s a sociopath, and we feel terrible about giving her no more than token resistance when she said she was moving in with him."
