A Queens man accused of killing his girlfriend appeared in court Monday.
A grand jury indicted 33-year-old Jason Bohn on first-degree murder charges.
Prosecutors allege the University of Florida law school graduate beat and strangled 27-year-old Danielle Thomas.
Investigators found Thomas in a bathtub inside the couple's Astoria apartment. Her body was surrounded by bags of ice.
They said he called police to say they had an argument and he threw her against a wall.
Todd Greenberg, who is one of Bohn's attorneys, said his client's mental state may be a factor.
"This may not be a case of who done it as much as why it happened," he said. "And, to that extent, I do think Mr. Bohn's mental capacity will become an issue in this case."
Bohn is due back in court in September.
He's being held without bail.
