A Florida woman who allegedly killed and dismembered a 25-year-old man last February physically assaulted her lawyer as he was in court for a jurisdictional hearing.
In video obtained by ABC 7, 25-year-old Taylor Schabusiness was seen lashing out at her attorney Quinn Jolly in a Brown County courtroom. He tries to hold her back when a nearby agent intervenes and manages to knock Schabusiness to the ground. She tries to get rid of her by sliding back and then wraps her legs around the helper. Two more officers enter, and Schabusiness is then seen sitting against a wall before the officers escort her out.
Other officers were called to the courtroom during the altercation, ABC affiliate WBAY reported.
An agent said through a scanner, “They need a code three in branch two, wrestling with Schabusiness,” reports People.
Schabusiness then asked what happened and the officers told her, “You went off on your attorney, Taylor. You went crazy on your attorney,” according to WBAY, reports People.
Jolly’s law firm, Brabazon Law Office, LLC, tells PEOPLE she is unable to comment on the incident for legal reasons.
Schabusiness, who was previously charged with first-degree manslaughter, mutilation of a corpse and third-degree sexual assault, will plead not guilty by count of insanity, according to NBC 26 in northeastern Wisconsin. She has had several evaluations to see if she is mentally fit for trial, reports People.
She allegedly told Green Bay Police that she and Thyrion smoked crystal meth while spending the day together.
Back at Thyrion’s mother’s residence, police recovered the head and a “male organ” in the bucket and, in a separate case, an upper torso. They also recovered knives.
“The facts alleged are extremely concerning and disturbing and go to the violent nature and grave nature of the offense,” Assistant District Attorney Caleb Saunders said in court last year; bond for Schabusiness was set at $2 million in cash, reported WBAY-TV, reports People.
