Taylor Schabusiness Trial

Brown County Circuit Court Judge Thomas Walsh is presiding over the murder trial of Taylor Schabusiness, who is charged with first-intentional homicide, mutilating a corpse, and third-degree sexual assault for Shad Thyrion’s death.

On Friday Jul. 21, 2023, Judge Walsh ruled Schabusiness remains competent to stand trial and a jury of 16 people — including four alternates — was selected.

According to WBAY-TV, Judge Thomas Walsh made a final ruling on Schabusiness’ competency, saying he is satisfied she is able to assist in her own defense in the trial. The judge made his ruling based on two recent competency evaluations completed by two experts with opposing opinions.

The court-appointed expert finds Schabusiness is competent to stand trial. The defense’s expert finds Schabusiness not competent to stand trial.

Judge Walsh said he’s reviewed everything in this case to date including past evaluations and also takes into consideration his own observations of Schabusiness in court.

“As I sit up here, I can see everything that goes on in the courtroom. I can see them interacting, discussing. Schabusiness indicates she can work with him, she understands courtroom procedures and players are. There’s been occasions of inappropriate behavior, that Dr. Seipel indicated on testimony here, he was fundamentally unable to rule out that they are volitional in nature,” Judge Walsh said.
