WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU)   A Wausau woman accused of torturing her ex-boyfriend's dog was in court for a pre-trial hearing yesterday. Lawyers for 21-year-old Sean Janus want her diary to be inadmissible at trial. In it she wrote about her intense dislike for the dog, and enjoyed seeing it suffer. Several diary entries talk about her mistreating the animal.

She's accused of killing "Mary", a 4-year-old lab/shepherd mix in 2012. The animal had ingested household chemicals and was stabbed.

Janus pled not guilty to two counts of animal cruelty. Her jury trial is scheduled to begin January 21.
