No plea deal for Wausau woman accused of killing dog

WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - It appears that a Wausau woman will go on trial for allegedly poisoning and stabbing her ex-boyfriend’s dog to death.

Marathon County prosecutors could not reach a plea deal this week with 21-year-old Sean Janas. So a four-day trial is set to begin July 29th, with pre-trial issues to be settled on Monday.

Janas is facing a pair of felony charges for poisoning and mistreating an animal, plus a misdemeanor count of obstructing police. Her trial was originally planned for May, but Janas fired her previous attorney in March.

Prosecutors said she forced her ex-boyfriend’s Shepherd-Labrador mix to drink bleach, and then stabbed the pet several times. Officials said Janas also kept a diary in which she described how she liked watching the pet suffer.

The case attracted a worldwide following on social media, as animal rights supporters called for the maximum penalty of 5 years in prison plus $30,000 in fines.

Janas will also face a trial at the same time on two unrelated retail theft charges.
