Schabusiness to plead insanity during murder trial
GREEN BAY, MI— Trial has been delayed for a Wisconsin woman accused of killing and dismembering a Green Bay man.
At a status conference Thursday, the lawyer for Taylor Schabusiness asked for a new trial date. He said the defense wouldn’t be ready by the original October date.
Schabusiness is charged with first-degree intentional homicide, mutilating a corpse, and third-degree sexual assault in the February death of 25-year-old Shad Thyrion. Police found body parts scattered around his mother’s west Green Bay home and in a van.
Schabusiness plans to plead not guilty by reason of insanity. The judge will appoint an evaluator.
Another status hearing is scheduled for October 3.
