NEW YORK (AP) -- A New Yorker is now charged with first-degree murder in the beating and strangulation of a central Kentucky woman.
Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown announced the new charge Friday in the 10-count indictment of Jason Bohn.
Brown says the charge alleges the Florida law school graduate acted in an "especially cruel and wanton manner" intended to "torture" the victim.
Police found Danielle Thomas, a native of Danville, Ky., dead on June 26 in the pair's Astoria apartment.
On June 7th, Thomas had reported that she'd been assaulted.
The prosecutor says that while Thomas was at the police station, Bohn allegedly called her cell phone and threatened to "hunt her down" and "bash in her skull."
Bohn's attorney did not immediately return a call for comment.
