New dates set for Janas dog torture and death trial

WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) -- As expected, the January 21st trial date has been changed for a Wausau woman accused of torturing her ex-boyfriend’s dog. 

21-year-old Sean Janas will face a judge and jury for allegedly poisoning, torturing, and eventually killing Mary, the four-year-old lab-shepherd mix back in June of 2012. After several motions and delays, the new trial dates begin March 17th before Judge Greg Grau in Marathon County.

The defense tried unsuccessfully to move the trial due to publicity. Janas’ attorney also tried unsuccessfully to have his client’s diary ruled inadmissible in court. That diary is said to contain graphic details of Janas’ actions and the enjoyment she got from watching the dog suffer. Just last week, the court decided to allow the diary as evidence.
