NEW YORK (AP) -- A New York City prosecutor says a University of Florida law school graduate has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for torturing and killing his girlfriend.
Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown announced the sentencing of Jason Bohn on Tuesday. He was convicted of first-degree murder in March.
The trial evidence included a cellphone recording in which Weight Watchers executive Danielle Thomas begged for her life.
Authorities believe she accidentally dialed a friend's number as she was being beaten and strangled in June 2012.
Her body was found in a bathtub surrounded by ice.
Thomas, a native of Danville, Ky., attended both the University of Florida and University of Central Florida. She was 27.
