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

Taylor Schabusiness, 25, was seated in a Brown County circuit court when
her attorney, Quinn Jolly, asked the judge for an additional two weeks for
a defense expert to review his client's competency to stand trial.

Moments after Judge Thomas Walsh reluctantly agreed to postpone her March
6 trial, Schabusiness attacked Jolly and was wrestled to the courtroom
floor by a deputy, WLUK-TV reported. The courtroom was then cleared before
the hearing resumed.

Schabusiness is charged with first-degree intentional homicide, mutilating
a corpse and third-degree sexual assault in the killing of Shad Thyrion,
25, in February 2022. Authorities say she strangled Thyrion at a home in
Green Bay, sexually abused him and dismembered his body, leaving parts of
him throughout the house and in a vehicle.

Schabusiness has pleaded not guilty and not guilty by reason of mental
disease or defect. She is being held on a $2 million cash bond.

Following her courtroom outburst, the judge moved her competency hearing
from Tuesday to March 6. The judge also proposed a May 15 trial date.

At the end of the hearing, Jolly told the court he would file a motion to
withdraw from the case as Schabusiness' attorney but the judge did not
immediately rule on that matter.
