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.
