Wausau woman who abused boyfriend's dog goes to prison Submitted: 03/17/2014
Story By Shardaa Gray

WAUSAU - A Wausau woman who killed her boyfriend's dog two years ago will now head to prison.

22 year old Sean Janas wrote diary entries about abusing he boyfriend's four year old German Shepherd-Labrador mix.

The dog died in June 2012.

Now, she will spend a year and a half in prison.

After her time in prison, she'll be on extended supervision for two years.

The judge ordered her to spend an extra nine months in prison on the second count.

But since she's already spent 447 days in the Marathon County jail, the judge found that she didn't need to spend that extra time in prison.
