WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - A Wausau woman will spend just over three months in a state prison and nine months in the Marathon County Jail after she tortured and killed her ex-boyfriend's dog.
22-year-old Sean Janas was sentenced Monday to one-and-a-half years in a state lockup. But the term was reduced by the 447 days she spent in jail, while her internationally reported court case was going through the system. She'll be under extended supervision for two years once she gets out.
Janas blamed heroin abuse for destroying her life, but a prosecutor said it had nothing to do with the diary Janas wrote. She said she enjoyed torturing and poisoning Mary, her ex-boyfriend's four-year-old Labrador and German shepherd mix.
Mary died in 2012 after she was repeatedly stabbed, beaten, and poisoned with drain cleaner and bleach.
On social media, animal lovers from numerous countries demanded the maximum prosecution for Janas. Her jail time resulted from the thefts in other counties, plus a charge dropped in a plea deal that was considered for sentencing purposes.
