HARRIS COUNTY, Texas. According to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, a man is accused of strangling his girlfriend during an “erotic” act.
Jaaron Thomas, 27, was charged with manslaughter after MPs responded to a medical emergency on Ashland Boulevard in Channelview on Tuesday just before 2:30 am.
When they arrived, they found the woman unconscious and took her to the hospital, where they pronounced her dead. Investigators said Thomas told them that the woman was his girlfriend and that they were involved in a sexual act described as “erotic choking” before she stopped responding.
After further investigation, Thomas was arrested and charged with manslaughter. Court documents state that Thomas pressed the woman’s neck and throat with his hands, preventing her from breathing.
Thomas is currently being held at the Harris County Jail on $40,000 bail and is expected to appear in court on Thursday.
