WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin woman has pleaded not guilty to charges she tortured and killed her boyfriend's dog.
Sean Janas, 20, of Wausau entered her plea Monday in Marathon County court.
WAOW-TV reports a group of protesters, some with their dogs, gathered outside the courthouse during Janas' appearance. The protesters have called on prosecutors to seek the maximum penalties against Janas, if she is convicted.
Prosecutors say Janas poisoned her boyfriend's dog, a German shepherd-Labrador mix named Mary, and tortured the animal before the 4-year-old dog died in June.
Janas remains in jail with bond set at $2,500.
