A man who fatally beat and strangled his girlfriend in the Astoria apartment they shared will spend the rest of his life in prison.

A Queens judge sentenced 35-year-old Jason Bohn to life without chance of parole.

The law school graduate was found guilty last month of murdering 27-year-old Danielle Thomas.

A voicemail recorder caught Thomas' final moments when her cellphone pocket dialed a friend.

Thomas, who worked as a financial analyst for Weight Watchers, is heard more than a dozen times telling Bohn she loves him.

Then, as the attack progressed, she's heard saying she can't breathe.

Thomas' body was found submerged in a bathtub filled with ice.

Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said Bohn acted "in an especially cruel and wanton manner."
