The trial of a Wisconsin woman accused of killing, dismembering a man will begin Monday.

The trial of a Wisconsin woman accused of killing and dismembering a man in Green Bay will begin Monday, after a judge found her fit to assist in her own defense.

Taylor Shibzens, 25, of Green Bay, was charged with first-degree intentional homicide, mutilation of a corpse and third-degree sexual assault after he allegedly strangled Shade Threeon at a Green Bay home in February 2022.

Schabusiness is also accused of sexually assaulting and dismembering Thyrion, leaving body parts throughout the house and car.

The suspect pleaded not guilty and not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect to the crimes. In March, a judge ruled that Schabusiness was competent to stand trial.

Christopher T. Froelich of the Green Bay-based Froelich Law Group told the court that he disagreed with the court’s decision that his client was deemed competent to assist in his own defense, the Associated Press reported.

On Friday, 16 jurors were selected for the trial, with four serving as alternates.

In April, Froelich requested the case be moved because, “Brown County cannot have a fair and impartial trial … due to substantial pretrial publicity and other factors.”

Evidence of publicity was insufficient to bring in a jury from another jurisdiction or to select a new venue, Judge Thomas Walsh ruled at the time.

To help weed out jurors, prosecutors said they were not averse to sending questionnaires to potential jurors asking about their use of the news in relation to the case.

In a video that surfaced in February 2023, Schabusiness was seen attacking his attorney, Quinn Jolly, in a Brown County circuit courtroom.

Shortly after Walsh agreed to adjourn the March 6 trial, Shibzens attacked Quinn and was tackled to the ground by a sheriff’s deputy.

As a result of the outcry, the judge moved his competency hearing date to March 6 and proposed a trial date of May 15.
