Woman Accused Of Bizzarre Torture, Poisoning, And Murder Of Boyfriend’s Dog

Posted on October 28, 2012


Wisconsin (The Gaslamp Post) – It’s said that serial killers start out torturing and killing small animals.  Something about watching something else in pain and terrified, sparks excitement in a sadistic individual.

From there it’s said, that the individual seeks larger game to go after.

The great state of Wisconsin, who has given us such famous serial killers as Ed Gein and Jeffrey Dahmer, is spitting out another prospect which fits that profile.  A Wausau woman has been arrested and charged with the poisoning, torturing, and murder of her boyfriend’s dog.

Sean D. Janas, 20, kept diary of how she tortured and killed her boyfriend’s dog.

Police say that Sean D. Janas, 20, tortured her boyfriend’s dog, poisoned her with draino and bleach, and then slashed it’s throat.  What was even more disturbing, as if this sort of thing wasn’t heinous enough, was that she kept a diary – keeping a running log of not only what she was doing, but what was going through her head.

“I need to find a way to kill her without it looking like I killed her,” Janas wrote. “I’ve done lots of things already. I’ve given her drano, bleach and a lot of pain pills lol one night she got all tweaked out because of it, it was so funny.”

In another entry:

“I have never hated an animal so much in my life, much less hate one or beat one. But the pleasure I get from watching her whimper in pain and cry out for help as I shove drano and bleach down her throat is like no other,” Janas wrote.

The dog, Mary, a 4-year-old german shepard – labrador mix, was believed to have been killed in early June.  A neighbor had reported seeing the dog staggering in the street, and bleeding from her head as far back as April.

Her owner, and boyfriend of Janas, had reported that the dog had been vomiting blood for about a week prior to the episode, while at the vet’s office.

Janas was taken into custody last Monday, and charged with felony mistreatment of animals, giving poison to an animal and obstructing an officer.  She is currently held on $2500 bond.

If convicted, she faces over 5 years in prison and $30,000 in fines.  She is due back in front of a judge on October 31, 2012.
