Wausau woman charged with killing dog to stay behind bars

by

WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - A Wausau woman accused of poisoning and stabbing her ex-boyfriend’s dog will stay in jail for now.

Marathon County Circuit Judge Greg Grau said no Wednesday to letting 20-year-old Sean Janas go free on a signature bond.

Grau said he saw no justification to change the woman’s current bond, which is $2,500.

Animal welfare advocates from both in and out of Wisconsin have taken notice of the case – and many show up to support the dog every time Janas appears in court.

She’s charged with poisoning and mistreating an animal, and obstructing police. Prosecutors said she forced her ex-boyfriend’s Shepherd-Labrador mix to drink bleach to slowly poison the dog, and then stabbed her several times.

Officials said Janas also kept a diary in which she described how she liked watching the pet suffer.

Her next scheduled court appearance is a pre-trial hearing on March 6th. A two-day trial is set for May 1st and 2nd.
