The 33-year-old lawyer accused of killing his girlfriend in a rage has been placed on suicide watch. Jason Bohn, who had a history of abusing victim Danielle Thomas, pleaded not guilty yesterday to charges including Thomas's murder, aggravated criminal contempt, and tampering with evidence. Police say that they have recovered two handwritten notes at Bohn's apartment in which he allegedly confesses to the murder: "“It was an accident, it was an accident, it was an accident," one started.

"I had been drinking and I was drunk when I got home," the note read. "She was already asleep. I woke up and there was fighting between us, and when I woke up again she was unconscious. I am sorry.” The second note allegedly read, “Dani, I will love you forever.” Police discovered the body of 27-year-old Thomas in an ice-filled bathtub on Tuesday; Bohn called them the same day to say he had gotten into an argument with Thomas and threw her against a wall. Bohn also apparently sent text messages to Thomas' friends from her phone, after killing her.

It was determined that Thomas was killed by strangulation and blunt force trauma. Thomas, a financial analyst at Weight Watchers, had been brutally beaten by Bohn in late May and when she appeared at the 114th Precinct to ask for a restraining order in early June, her bruises were still evident. While at the police station, police could hear Bohn yelling at Thomas through her 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."

Bohn was arrested eating dinner with his lawyer and mother at a restaurant in White Plains about 8:00 p.m. Friday. "We knew that they sometimes, well fairly often, didn't get along and that arguments were fairly frequent in the relationship, but, you know, this came as a true shock to all of us," Josh Johnson, a friend of Thomas, told NY1.
