Green Bay woman pleads not guilty in dismemberment slaying

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — A woman accused in a grisly killing and dismemberment case in Green Bay has pleaded not guilty.

Twenty-four-year-old Taylor Schabusiness was arraigned in Brown County Circuit Court Tuesday on charges of first-degree intentional homicide, mutilating a corpse and third-degree sexual assault.

A criminal complaint accuses Schabusiness of strangling Shad Thyrion last February at a Green Bay home, sexually abusing him and dismembering his body.

An earlier ruling by a judge found Schabusiness competent to stand trial, which is scheduled to begin Oct. 24.

She is being held on a $2 million cash bond.
