GREEN BAY (NBC 26) — Taylor Schabusiness, a woman accused of killing and dismembering a Green Bay man, will receive a second exam to determine if she's competent to stand trial.

This comes after a hearing Wednesday in Brown County court, where Judge Thomas Walsh said the court-ordered competency evaluation indicates she’s competent to proceed with a trial.

Judge Walsh then granted Shabusiness’ lawyer’s request for an independent competency exam. The exam is expected to be completed in time for Shabusiness’ next scheduled court appearance, a status conference at 3 p.m. on May 10.

Schabusiness has been charged with first-degree intentional homicide, mutilating a corpse, and third-degree sexual assault in connection to the death of a Green Bay man back in February.

She is currently being held on a $2,000,000 bond.
