Wisconsin woman accused in dismemberment slaying attacks her attorney

GREEN BAY, Wis. – A woman accused in a grisly killing and dismemberment case in Wisconsin has attacked her attorney during a court hearing, moments after a judge agreed to delay her trial.

Twenty-five-year-old Taylor Schabusiness was seated in a Brown County circuit court Tuesday when her attorney asked the judge for an additional two weeks for a defense expert to review her competency to stand trial.

WLUK-TV reports that moments after the judge agreed to postpone her March 6 trial, Schabusiness attacked her attorney, and a deputy wrestled her the courtroom floor. She is charged with first-degree intentional homicide and other counts in the February 2022 slaying of Shad Thyrion in Green Bay.
