Wisconsin woman attacks her own attorney in court
A lawyer for a woman who allegedly beheaded her lover quit after being brutally beaten by his client.
Taylor Schabusiness, 25, who allegedly decapitated her lover and cut up other parts of his body during a drug-fueled sex game, assaulted her attorney in a Wisconsin courtroom.
Pictures showed Schabusiness assaulting her attorney, Quinn Jolly, at around 8:48 a.m. in Brown County District Court in Greenbay, Wisconsin, United States.
Despite being handcuffed, she appears to manage to elbow the lawyer in the head, but he sustains no injuries.
At the time of the hearing, Jolly announced that he would be seeking removal from the case, a motion that has now been granted by a judge.
Brown County Judge Thomas Walsh said: “I am pleased with the allegations and obviously at the last hearing here I was in court and saw the events that transpired.

“I’m pleased with Mr. Jolly’s request to retire under these circumstances — makes a lot of sense to me,” WBAY reported.
Footage of the incident shows a security guard stepping in and struggling to control Schabusiness on the ground while continuing to resist before reinforcements arrive.
The attack came shortly after a judge agreed to delay her trial, with Mr Jolly asking for a further two weeks for a defense expert to review his client’s competence to stand trial.
Shortly after Judge Thomas Walsh reluctantly agreed to adjourn her March 6 trial, Schabusiness attacked Jolly and was wrestled to the courtroom floor by the deputy. The courtroom was then cleared before the hearing continued.

Schabusiness, who is reportedly married to another man, is charged with first-degree first-degree murder, mutilation of a corpse and third-degree sexual assault in the February 2022 killing of 25-year-old Shad Thyrion.
Authorities say she strangled Thyrion in a Green Bay home, sexually assaulted him and dismembered his body, leaving parts of him around the home and in a vehicle.
Schabusiness has pleaded not guilty and not guilty of either a mental illness or a defect. She is held on a $2 million cash bond.

After her outburst in the courtroom, the judge rescheduled her competency hearing from Tuesday to March 6. The judge also suggested a hearing date of May 15.
At the end of the hearing, Jolly told the court that, as a Schabusiness attorney, he would petition to withdraw from the case, but the judge did not immediately rule on the matter.
