The Increasing Abuse 

Jason began accusing Daniel of treason. He said that she lied about her past. At the time, he felt insecure. However, the police did not find evidence that Danielle had ever betrayed Jason.

That may be serious they thought and called 911. They both said they heard a fight and the woman was screaming and crying. They also told the police that the man forcibly kept the woman in the apartment. Danielle was lucky to escape. She could not walk. She began to crawl into the hallway of the apartment. Angry Jason left their apartment, saw her, and caught up her. He pulled her back to the room. Danielle was left with big bruises. A few weeks later, Danielle went to the police to report Jason. She arrived at the police station and showed the police her bruises. Jason harassed her that day with text messages. He wrote her accusations of treason. He wrote threats. He wrote that she would be beaten for her bad behavior and bad attitude towards him. All the actions she performs against him, he will repay her tenfold. Jason phoned Danielle when she was at the police station. She turned it into a loudspeaker, and police were shocked to hear his threats. Jason told Danielle it was a war between them. He told her he would hunt her down like a dog. The police heard everything he said. The police performed certain legal actions. Danielle received the Order of Protection. She eventually returned to their apartment. She decided to return to Jason and told the police she wanted to save him and that she can do it.

The Murder

It was on June 23, 2012. Jason and Danielle went to a party. Here was the company of some Jason’s friends. Jason told the police they drank a lot and quarreled with Danielle. Jason threatened to hurt Danielle’s dog. Then a abusive boyfriend left the bar alone. She loved her dog very much and was seriously worried. Danielle was visibly upset. Jason’s friend asked Danielle if she had a place to stay. She said that she is okay. She decided that she had to go home and pick up her lovely dog. A friend gave Danielle his phone number and told her to call if she needed anything. At 2:15 a.m., Danielle entered their apartment. Jason snatched her phone and saw a number he did not recognize. Jason started attacking Danielle. He accused her of lying to him. Danielle was able to call secretly 911. The police officers heard her begging for help and Jason’s threats in the background. However, the police did not respond to Danielle’s call. At 3:20 a.m., Danielle also secretly called his bar friend. Danielle left a voice message. It was the last Danielle’s voice record. Jason issued an ultimatum to Danielle. He questioned Danielle why she called the number he saw on her phone. Danielle said she did not know. Then Jason strangled her and trampled her to death. Two days after the murder, Jason called the police. He asked them to check on her because they had quarreled. Detectives were sent to the Astoria apartment, located between 33rd and 28th avenues in Queens. When the investigators arrived, they found the open door. When they entered the room, they saw a 27-year-old’s body in the bathroom. She had a love letter in her hands. Her dog was protecting her bloodied body. New York investigators said there was something strange at the crime scene. They saw the bruises on her head, the woman did not drown in the bath. They saw a window with a fan on and opened bags of ice around the bruised body. It became clear to detectives that someone was trying to save the body. It seemed that it was not a suicide act. It was a sadistic murder. Jason’s murder trial began in February 2014 and lasted 7 weeks. Jason’s defense was based on fact that he was suffering from a recurrent explosive disorder.
